People who have saved this event:



Scottish artist Robert Callender (1932 - 2011) was driven by his interest in the craft of making and in the environment - particularly the coast, the sea and those who worked on it. A prodigious and technically accomplished output of paintings, work in three dimensions and printmaking is complemented by his writings - succinct prose and poetry on maritime and environmental themes.

Focusing on a selection of the artist’s work, the exhibition addresses environmental concerns, ways and means of recycling; issues that underline the enduring and absolute relevance of Robert Callender’s ideas, particularly his later work which took a distinctly ecological turn with his significant installation Plastic Beach.

Exhibition in partnership with Lateral Lab and the Estate of Robert Callender.
