Join artist Ryan Gander in conversation with Dominic Wilkinson (Senior Lecturer in Architecture, Liverpool John Moores University) at the Liverpool Metropolitan Cathedral. They will discuss the artist's new project Time Moves Quickly in relation to learning and education, as well as the influence of the Cathedral's architecture. 

For Liverpool Biennial 2018, Gander has worked collaboratively with five children from Knotty Ash Primary School in Liverpool – Jamie Clark, Phoebe Edwards, Tianna Mehta, Maisie Williams and Joshua Yates – to produce a series of artworks and a film exploring the activities carried out in the workshops. The project takes inspiration from the Montessori method of education, based on self-directed activity, hands-on learning and collaborative play. In addition to a presentation at Bluecoat, Gander and the children have created a new public artwork for the city: five bench-like sculptures which can be found on the plateau behind the Liverpool Metropolitan Cathedral.
