Lewis C. at Göcsei Museum – THREE MUSEUM OBJECTS; a series of sculptures based on objects from Zalaegerszeg’s museums and the town’s built environment. Together, these objects form a highly subjective cross-section of Zalaegerszeg’s history. The three objects come from very different physical areas of Zalaegerszeg, as well as different time periods in the region’s history. CLICK FOR DETAILS
Kaitlin Rees invited us to a reading party! A reading party is like any other party except that guests bring something to read out loud. It can be something that they’ve written or that someone else has. It can be from a great novel or from a shopping list.
