Panel Discussion: Gordon Cheung Breaking Tulips Sep 29, 2015 Alan Cristea Gallery
London, United Kingdom

Tuesday, September 29at 6:00pm in UTC+01

Join artist Gordon Cheung, who will discuss his latest body of work and exhibition, 'Breaking Tulips' (11 September - 6 October 2015), with historian, writer and broadcaster Charlotte Mullins and Professor Karin Moelling whose research into viruses sheds light on ‘Breaking Tulips,' a plant virus that causes tulips to blossom with stripes.

400 years ago the trading of these exceptionally valuable bulbs became so extreme it caused ‘Tulipmania' - the world's first recorded major financial crash. Cheung's exhibition provides an historical reflection of contemporary culture through the exploration of the Dutch Golden Age, a period of extraordinary wealth and power in 16th- and 17th- century Holland.

Other guest speakers to be announced. Seats will be allocated on a first come first served basis.
