Maggie Walker (Level 1) presents ‘work in progress’ ‘Poor Art Arte Povera’ exhibition which will be part of the Late Shows. The exhibition is inspired by the 1960’s Italian Arte Povera group drawing on the use of used humble discarded materials.  Poor Art also refers to the challenging times we live in.
