DESCRIPTION

Lecture Theatre
Chelsea College of Art and Design, 16 John Islip Street, SW1P 4JU


Los Angeles-based, British pop artist Derek Boshier gives a rare talk in London about his most recent projects, alongside the concepts and history of his earlier work.

The presentation is followed by an in-conversation with writer and pop culture commentator Paul Gorman.

Boshier is renowned for his contribution to the British Pop Art movement in the 1960’s, emerging alongside fellow RCA students David Hockney, Allen Jones, and R.B. Kitaj. In a career that has seen him create album designs for David Bowie and illustrate a songbook for The Clash, Boshier has continually defied classification working across many different media.


This event also promises an unmissable opportunity to see a screening of ‘Reel,’ a film by Boshier, originally shot on 16mm in 1973.
