MMAC: In Conversation with John Neilson
Priory St, Coventry CV1 5FB, UK
Professor Ann Sumner Chair of the Methodist Modern Art Collection talks to author and lettercarver John Neilson about his recently published book The Inscriptions of Ralph Beyer.
The discussions will focus in particular on the Son of Man Tablet of the Word at Coventry Cathedral, for which the Methodist Modern Art Collection owns a preparatory drawing currently on loan to the Cathedral as part of the City of Culture, Stories of Change: Hope, Faith, Love Art Trail. Beyer came to Britain as a refugee aged 16 from Nazi Germany and Neilson’s book outlines his career and contextualises his major commission to create the large scale Tablets of the Word in Coventry Cathedral.
Booking is advised. There will also be the opportunity to acquire a signed book by the author at the Cathedral Bookshop.
