Tracey and her bed

The bed in question

The second YouCaxton literary lecture is scheduled for 6.30 pm Tuesday 2nd October at the YouCaxton Shop in Bishop’s Castle – except it’s not quite literary. Abstract artist and art historian, Phillip Woolley, will be expounding on the subject of  ‘Tracey Emin and her bed’, Phillip will be looking at the development of conceptual art in its social and historical context using Tracey’s bed as a leitmotif. He will discuss the process by which the art of the Britpop artists developed and how their work became so lucrative for a small number of them.
