Event description

Description

Join exhibition curator Jenny Lance for an introduciton to Research and Cultural Collections' latest exhibition Delta Field Grid: David Prentice.

Research and Cultural Collections presents recently gifted works by artist David Prentice (1936-2014). This exhibition features a series of large-scale triangular paintings referred to by the artist as "delta field grids" painted during the 1970s. A founding member of Birmingham's internationally renowned IKON Gallery, Prentice was commissioned by the University of Birmingham in 1970 to create Pleiades, a series of grids on mirrors. This marked the beginning of a close relationship between Prentice, his artist-wife Dinah and the University; culminating in the gift of paintings and the artist’s archive, featured in the current exhibition.

The talk will start at 12.45 in the Rotunda Gallery, Aston Webb Building (R6 on the campus map). Please arrive ten minutes before so that the talk can start promptly.

This event is presented as part of #HelloBrum Day.
