Whether you've seen it, loved it and want to see it again, or you've not yet been, tomorrow is a perfect time to visit Middlesbrough Institute of Modern Art mima for the Chance Finds Us exhibition.
To complement the exhibition, there will be a free talk this Saturday afternoon (1-4pm), called What Are The Chances.
The talk will begin with a piece by Sir David Spiegelhalter, Winton Professor of the Public Understanding of Risk in the Statistical Laboratory at Cambridge University, in which he will explore the substance of chance, coincidence and determinable patterns in the world at large. How does randomness come into our lives and how can we better understand it?
This will be followed by a conversation introduced and chaired by writer and art historian Chris Yetton about order, process and chance in art, explored through the work of artists exhibiting in Chance Finds Us. Peter J. Evans, James Hugonin and Anne Vibeke Mou will each introduce talking points connected to their individual practices and the wider discussion.
Booking required via mima's website: http://www.visitmima.com/whats-on/single/chance-finds-us-talk/
