Do you remember we posted recently on the wonderful artist Phyllida Barlow and her DOCK installation at Tate Britain? Well some of Phyllida’s drawings are on show at the Hauser & Wirth gallery on Savile Row, conveniently close to Regent Street and Oxford Street, should you be in London shopping, or perfect companion viewing if you’re planning to visit Phyllida’s Tate exhibition (on until October 2014).
Fifty Years of Drawing shows Phyllida’s work from her personal archive that dates back to the 1960s, when she was a student at Chelsea College of Art, and very colourful and architectural they are too. I love her work and she is captivatingly lacking in arty-bollocks you often hear in the art world. We also love her because she is still creating amazing work at 70. You might like to know that Phyllida will be in conversation with Fiona Bradley, director of Edinburgh’s Fruitmarket gallery and Briony Fer, professor of history of art from UCL at University College London’s Gower Street lecture theatre on 9th June at 5.30pm. it’s free but booking is essential from [email protected]
For those of you who can’t go to either, here are a few highlights….
