Paula Rego as Printmaker by Paul Coldwell, artist and Professor in Fine Art at the University of the Arts London
Thursday, 22 May 2014 from 18:00 to 20:00 (BST)
This talk given by Paul Coldwell, contemporary artist and Professor in Fine Art at the University of the Arts London, will discuss his time working with celebrated artist Paula Rego.
It is part of a series of FREE lectures that is open to the public during the course of Underexposed: Female Artists and the Medium of Print exhibition, which runs from 16 May to 19 June 2014.
The exhibition opens:
Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday (except 23 May), 9am to 5pm
Thursday, 9am to 8pm
Saturday, 10am to 5pm
FREE admission, disabled access.
Underexposed will survey the ways in which prominent female artists have used the medium of print over the last two centuries (and beyond). It will feature painters and sculptors, and highlight how print relates to their primary focus. It will also look at those who are or have been printmakers first and foremost, and why they have chosen to work in that particular artistic medium. At the same time, the exhibition will examine the different types of prints, as well as the different subject matter chosen by the various female artists represented.
The exhibition concept has received a lot of support from professional curators in both national and local institutions and in higher education. We feel it is an opportunity to educate both the art-going public and students on the importance of the print medium in western art history, and to celebrate the artistic achievements of female artists overall.
Artists include: Alison Wilding RA, Alyson Hunter, Ana Maria Pacheco, Anita Klein PPRE Hon RWS, Anne Desmet RA, Anya Gallacio, Barbara Hepworth DBE, Berthe Morisot, Beryl Cook OBE, Bridget Riley CH CBE, Charlotte Cornish, Charlotte Hodes, Cornelia Parker OBE RA, Dawn Cole, Diana Ghisi, Dorothea Tanning, Eileen Cooper RA, Eileen Lawrence, Elisabeth Frink DBE RA, Elizabeth Magill, Ethel Spowers, Gillian Carnegie, Gwen Raverat, Joan Mitchell, Leonora Carrington OBE, Liliane Lijn, Lill Tschudi, Louise Bourgeois, Lucy Farley, Mary Cassatt, Paula Rego DBE, Prunella Clough, Rose Hilton, Sandra Blow RA, Sarah Hardacre, Sarah Lucas, Sonia Delaunay, Susie Hamilton, Tess Jaray RA, Thérèse Oulton, Tracey Emin CBE RA and Valerie Thornton.
About the exhibition, Professor Coldwell says:
"It will be interesting to see if there is a particular female sensibility that connects the work or whether it simply provides a platform to give more attention to the depth and quality of women printmakers. Either way it promises to be an exciting and lively exhibition and to be thoroughly recommended."
