A Mighty Big If: Richard Strange in conversation with Richard Wilson

The House of St Barnabas is excited to announce the next A Mighty Big If in a season of events and conversations for summer 2013.  Ahead of the launch of its not-for-profit members’ club this Autumn, the beautiful chapel will once again open its doors for these intimate and unique events. Recently described as a “hip Soho hang-out” by the FT’s How to Spend It, The House of St Barnabas is an iconic building, and its chapel provides the atmospheric setting for talks, conversations and events that prompted Clash magazine to call Beth Orton’s recent gig “a dream”.


Founding member of the Club at The House of St Barnabas, Richard Strange returns this July with his A Mighty Big If soirées. The next in the series will feature Richard in conversation with Richard Wilson on 23 July, the celebrated sculptor and installation artist. He is internationally renowned for his interventions in architectural space, which often draw inspiration from the worlds of engineering and construction. As well as exhibiting around the world and representing Britain in global Biennials, Wilson has consistently produced work in the UK that has entered the canon of great British art, including his seminal installation in the Saatchi Gallery, 20:50. The sea of reflective sump oil was described by critic Andrew Graham as ‘one of the masterpieces of the modern age’. It is Wilson’s name perhaps more than that of any other that has become synonymous with the idea of installation art in Britain, and this July he will discuss his illustrious career with Richard Strange.
