BRUTIFUL BIRMINGHAM x BLACK COUNTRY TYPE
This informal event in Yorks Cafe includes the authors discussing their bestselling books, both published by The Modernist, plus an opportunity to ask questions and buy signed copies.
About the artists
Mary Keating has been an enthusiastic voice of Modernist architecture for many years. Living in a John Madin designed house, she was at the forefront of the campaign to save Birmingham Central Library.
A love of John Madin’s iconic Central Library prompted Jenny Marris to join The Brutiful Action group. This led to an interest in Modernist and Brutalist architecture, and a commitment to raise awareness of an important period in Birmingham’s architectural history.
Tom Hicks is the artist behind the documentary photography project Black Country Type. His work explores the post-industrial landscape of the region, focusing on words, typography, handmade lettering and signs. Hicks also photographs ‘types’ of architectural features, objects and structures.
