Thank you to everyone who joined us last Thursday evening, including those who came as part of First Thursdays Art Bus Tour, for an introduction to Luke Willis Thompson’s new commission, autoportrait, by Eliel Jones, Exhibition and Events Assistant at Chisenhale Gallery. Thank you also to Journey to Justice – a volunteer led education charity with a remit to inspire and empower people to take action for social justice through learning about human rights and the arts – for holding their meeting at Chisenhale Gallery and visiting and discussing Thompson’s work.
