Oscar Murillo: Violent Amnesia

This new exhibition will include painting, installation, sound and live performance, taking place in the galleries and across Kettle’s Yard.

For the kids, Kettle's Yard is also running a printing workshop inspired by the new exhibition on 9th April from 2-4pm. Find out more here.
