Dates and times

2 Dec 2020 6pm

Online Event

The Henry Moore Institute are introducing a new online format for their rescheduled research events. You can now attend their series of lectures, symposia and discussions linked to their exhibition Paloma Varga Weisz: Bumped Body remotely. With pre-recorded talks you can watch at your leisure, followed a week later by a live discussion event where your questions can be answered.

Trace the history of limewood carving in southern Germany in this talk by Dr Ruth Ezra.

This talk will look at limewood sculpture produced north of the Alps half a millennium ago, journeying into the forested hinterlands of Nuremberg in search of trunks to carve, traditional materials and the stuff of myth.

Dr Ruth Ezra's talk will be available to watch from 25 November. A live discussion with questions submitted by the audience will take place online on Wednesday 2 December at 6pm.
