Oliver Sutherland and Phil Root exhibit works at Kupfer Projects for Art Licks weekend:

 

These are the days my friends London, November 2019 Artists: Lydia Brockless - Andrew Gillespie - Clementine Keith-Roach - Jack Lavender - Hannah Lees - Kristofer Lock - Flora Parrott - Phil Root - Oliver Sutherland - Billie M. Vigne. Curated by Hannah Lees.

Loosely focusing around themes of history of location, archaeology and craft, ‘These are the days my friends’ brings together a diverse group of works by artists living and working outside London. In the context of Art Licks Weekend 2019, Kupfer responds to theme of ‘interdependence’ by extending an invitation to Margate-based artist Hannah Lees, to guest curate an exhibition that expands the space’s roster of exhibited artists, encompassing her own artistic and intellectual network.
