About the Event

Join us for a guided exhibition tour of Sharif Persaud's exhibition Have You Ever Had, with British Sign Language interpretation.

Placing himself at the centre of his work, Persaud explores identity through his experience of contemporary life and autism. His artistic practice has been developed in collaboration with the organisation Project Art Works, where he is a key contributor.

The tour will be led by Tim Corrigan, Creative Director at Project Art Works, providing insight to Persaud's practice, and his paintings, drawing, and film.

Everyone is welcome to join us. This event will be British Sign Language interpreted by Katie Fenwick, and is therefore suitable for people who are Deaf or hard of hearing.
