Venue: Lecture Theatre, Chelsea College of Art and Design, 16 John Islip Street, SW1P 4JU
Los Angeles-based, British pop artist Derek Boshier gives a rare talk in London about his most recent projects, alongside the concepts and history of his earlier work.
The presentation is followed by an in-conversation with writer and pop culture commentator Paul Gorman.
Boshier is renowned for his contribution to the British Pop Art
movement in the 1960's, emerging alongside fellow RCA students David Hockney, Allen Jones, and R.B. Kitaj.
In a career that has seen him create album designs for David Bowie, illustrate a songbook for The Clash, and feature in Ken Russell's documentary, âPop goes the easel,' Boshier has continually defied classification working across many different
media. From painting, drawing, photography, film, and installation, to graphic arts.
This event also promises an unmissable opportunity to see a screening of âReel,' a film by Boshier, originally shot on 16mm in 1973.
Presented by Chelsea Public Programme and CCW Graduate School.
