Bradley Bailey and Simon Purkis discuss Marcel Duchamp at World Chess HOF

It’s been a hugely exciting year so far at Purling London!  Events such as our solo exhibition at the renowned World Chess Hall of Fame in Saint Louis, Missouri has certainly been generating a buzz.  Our show “Painted Pieces” has been proving very popular ever since it launched back in April.

Watch the broadcast from here which features Associate Professor of Art History at Saint Louis University Bradley Bailey and Purling London founder Simon Purkis, talking about the custom chess sets designed specially for this exhibition and the Purling London brand.
