Podcast reveal: A Delicate Sight
Max Porter and Sam Winston discuss their experience of creating art in the dark

City of Literature 2020 begins! Today’s special episode features writer Max Porter and visual artist Sam Winston, talking about the collaborative exhibition A Delicate Sight. Originally intended to be part of this year’s Norfolk & Norwich Festival, we’re now taking the event online as part of City of Literature 2020.

Place darkness at the centre of your perception and explore how your senses, thoughts and emotions are heightened with this guided creative experience.

A number of the UK’s leading writers – including Bernardine Evaristo, Max Porter, Raymond Antrobus and Don Paterson – were commissioned to spend time in a dark room installation as part of artist and producer Sam Winston’s interactive exhibition A Delicate Sight. Now it’s your turn!
