People who have saved this event:



Reflecting on the collected writings of British artist, writer, curator and influential Goldsmiths tutor Jon Thompson, this discussion focuses on artists who write. Speakers also include writer JJ Charlesworth and artist Patrick Coyle. Jon Thompson's rules for writing are simple: be jargon free, be an advocate for art and provide a context that is far reaching. He was one of the most influential art teachers of his generation; over a thirty-year period he wrote on Mat Collishaw, Jannis Kounellis, Piero Manzoni, Mark Wallinger, Marcel Duchamp and Steve McQueen amongst many others.
