Richard Wentworth, a leading figure in British art since the 1970s, will talk with curator and writer Gavin Morrison to mark the recent publication of Making Do and Getting By.

Wentworth’s Making Do and Getting By celebrates his photographic series of the same name. Published by Koenig Books, in association with Peter Freeman, Inc. and Lisson Gallery, the book investigates processes of perception and communication. Beyond this, it documents an excess - a creativity beyond necessary functionality, something transformative that lurks below the surface intention in acts of ordering and repair. In this ongoing series of photographs taken on his daily trajectories, Wentworth frames the art of the human hand with a light and witty touch.

For Tuesday Evenings at the Modern, friends Morrison and Wentworth take this special opportunity to consider the practice of making images and making books.
