Peripherique is a series of informal events at the Henry Moore Institute. Organised by our Information Assistant Team, Peripherique invites artists who have previously worked Front of House to discuss their work. Our July event features Richard Taylor (who worked at the Institute between November 2007 and July 2009) presenting his current research.
