About this Event

Join author Bill Hare for a talk about his new book, Scottish Artists in an Age of Radical Change: 1945 to the 21st Century, a timely collection of essays and interviews from some of Scotland’s most prominent artists. From Joan Eardley to Alexander Moffat, Eduardo Paolozzi to Barbara Rae, John Bellany to Lys Hansen, the book explores those artists that have sculpted the cultural development of modern and contemporary Scotland.

Bill will be discussing the book and his experiences with the artists as both interviewee and art historian, revealing the richly diverse work of these important figures. Books will be available for sale at the event and Bill will be happy to sign copies.

Bill Hare studied Art History at the University of Edinburgh and the Courtauld Institute of Art. Since then he has taught Art History at the University of Edinburgh, Edinburgh College of Art and the Open University. In 1985 he was appointed Exhibitions Organiser at the Talbot Rice Gallery working with many Scottish artists as well as those from wider afield. Since 1995 he has concentrated on teaching and freelance curating, both in Scotland and abroad, and has published books and catalogues on a range of different aspects of historical, modern and contemporary Scottish art. He is currently an Honorary Fellow in Scottish art history at the University of Edinburgh.
