An Evening with David Salle. David Salle is the leading American postmodernist painter, the shaping spirit of a movement which provocatively took the entire history of art as its raw material as well as subject matter.

The new leadership of the Green Party has called for a “progressive alliance” involving Labour, Greens, Plaid Cymru, the SNP and the Lib Dems to take on the Conservatives in a 2020 election. This requires progressives to put aside their differences and unite behind a common new purpose – but are they up to the challenge?
Or is the way forward in the UK best left to one of the established main parties? Can they adapt and meet the aspirations of our nation in this new era of political turmoil?Find out more »
