Curator Chus Martínez talks to artist Andrea Büttner about her current display at Tate Britain, exploring Büttner’s interest in notions of poverty, shame, vulnerability and dignity and the belief systems that underpin them.  

Büttner will also discuss her recent research into the Gwen John and moss plant collections of the National Museum Cardiff. The evening will launch her artist’s book Hidden Marriages: Gwen John and Moss (Koenig, 2014).

There will also be the opportunity during the evening to have exclusive out of hours access to the BP Spotlight: Andrea Büttner display.

This event is related to the exhibition BP Spotlight: Andrea Büttner
