Join us during the exhibition The Poetics of Space to read, discuss and elaborate on salient themes from the exhibition.

For our final date, June 21, we are joined by local philosopher and educator Bruce Baugh for a discussion about spaces. Gaston Bachelard’s "Poetics of Space" (1958) used poetry to explore the qualities of spaces: open, closed, intimate, vast, sheltered, exposed. In this talk, Baugh will use philosophy to explore different kinds of space: bodily, lived, public, private, interior, domestic, outdoor, wild, geometrical and pictorial.
