'Eileen Cooper: A Woman's Skin - In Conversation with the Artist'
Thu 4 May 2017, 16:45 – 19:30 BST
‘Eileen Cooper: A Woman's Skin - In Conversation with the Artist’ marks the opening of an important exhibition of seventeen works by Eileen Cooper OBE RA, the first female Keeper of the Royal Academy Schools since its foundation in 1768.
This selection of paintings, collages and sculptures, which date from 1989 to 2016, document the artist’s distinguished place in the contemporary figurative tradition and reposition her work in light of three key themes: the monumental female figure, symbolic space and totemic nature.
On Thursday 4 May Eileen Cooper and the curator of the exhibition, Dr Meredith Hale, will discuss the question of meaning in her works as well as issues related to artistic process and gender at 6pm in the Lee Hall.
Attendees are welcome to preview the exhibition in the College's Combination Room from 4.45pm to 5.45pm.
The exhibition is open to the public Saturdays and Sundays 3pm to 5pm from 6 May to 17 September.
