Artists in Conversation: Laurelie Rae

Yunus Emre Institute in London and Leighton House are delighted to announce another fascinating series of talks featuring notable contemporary artists, exploring the classical and traditional arts and crafts of Turkey. Through the talks, we aim to showcase Leighton House and Frederic, Lord Leighton’s travels and appreciation of Turkey and highlight the work of the Institute.

Today, we can observe an increased interest in traditional Turkish-Islamic art. However much interesting facts and rituals remain unknown and unspoken about. Each talk will explore the path of a different artist, who will provide an insight into their experience and thoughts shaped by their individual area of art.

For the third talk of the series, we are joined by Laurelie Rae on Tuesday 14th July 2020 at 18:00 as she talks about her artistic journey and the art of Turkish ceramics.
