Artists’ Talk: Juno Calypso and Serena Korda


6:00 - 7:00 pm

Art Exchange

admission free

Join artists Juno Calypso and Serena Korda for an evening of conversation about their work on show in ‘I Put a Spell on You’.

The artists will offer personal insights into their work, as they expand on the ideas and inspiration behind the incredible artworks on show in Art Exchange. It’s a great opportunity to find out more about the creative ideas behind two artists who dismantle female archetypes, debunk myths and expected behaviours, while creating their own domains where they re-view the world through a female lens.

Moderated by curator Jess Twyman.

The talk will be followed by Q&A and a Drinks Reception in Art Exchange.

Admission Free – all welcome.

About the Artists

Juno Calypso

Working alone, Calypso comments on the construction of femininity as she makes photographs of herself in honeymoon hotels, underground bunkers and heart shaped hot tubs dressed as her fictional alter ego ‘Joyce’.

Recent exhibitions include The Horror Show, Somerset House, London (2022), Role Play, Prada Foundation, Milan (2021), What to Do with A Million Years, TJ Boulting, London (2018), Juno Calypso: The Honeymoon, Golden Thread Gallery, Belfast, Northern Ireland, The BJP IPA Winners’ Show’, TJ Boulting, London.

Serena Korda
