Ian Hamilton Finlay Weekend

A week before the closing of their Ian Hamilton Finlay exhibition (20 July – 8 September 201),
Arnolfini is hosting an "Ian Hamilton Finlay Weekend".  Friday August 30th  and Saturday the 31st will feature talks, film screenings, performances and readings around the work of Ian Hamilton Finlay.

The three model boats on view in the exhibition (see above) will be auctioned off in support of the estate of Ian Hamilton Finlay and to help maintain Finlay’s garden Little Sparta in Stonypath, Scotland. George Ferguson, the Mayor of Bristol, will serve as auctioneer. The garden has been called Finlay's "greatest work of art". For more information, visit their site, here.
