Nikesh Shukla In Conversation

Nikesh Shukla presents outcomes from his residency at Arnolfini.

Throughout Grayson Perry's exhibition, we are delighted to welcome Nikesh Shukla as writer-in-residence.

During the autumn, Nikesh will be producing new work, exploring themes around Brexit, British values and the idea of a nationalism that celebrates all of us, especially in a city like Bristol, built on the legacy of slavery.

Join us for a reading of the work followed by a conversation between Nikesh and invited guests.

 

About Nikesh Shukla 

Oriel Myrddin Book Club // Clwb Llyfrau Oriel Myrddin

Alongside Oriel Myrddin Gallery’s exhibition A Darker Thread // Edefyn Tywyllach  we will be reading Siri Hustvedt’s The Summer Without Men, chosen for us by the exhibition curator, Laura Thomas. A tale that starts with a faltering 30 year marriage and includes a cast of characters including Abigail who embroiders and appliques craft works with subversive undertones…
‘A rich and intelligent meditation on female identity, written in beguiling lyrical prose…heady and intoxicating.’ Lucy Scholes, Sunday Times

Lost Conquistadors Book Club // Clwb Llyfrau ‘Lost Conquistadors’

Alongside John Abell’s exhibition Lost Conquistadors and Other Works we’ll be reading Louis De Berniéres The War of Don Emmanuel’s Nether Parts which is the first published novel by the author of Captain Corelli’s Mandolin.

Feel the sweltering heat and passion of an un-specified Latin American country. The book combines serious political concerns, echoing the torment and turbulence of 20th century South and Central America, with the absurd, outrageous and symbolic drawing on the ‘magical realism’ of Gabriel García Márquez.
