Craig Richardson & Dr Dominic Paterson in conversation
7pm Gallery 2. At Glasgow Sculpture Studios
Richardson will be discussing the monograph in conversation with Dr Dominic Paterson. Together they will address key areas of cultural politics and identity in a Scottish-national visual art context.
Scottish Art since 1960: Historical Reflections and Contemporary Overviews provides us with an analysis of the art of this period through a new chronology. The book includes interviews with artists, curators and critics, and provides access to Richardson’s non-catalogued personal archives.
Richardson examines and proposes a sequence of 'exemplary' works that outline a self-conscious definition of the interrogative term 'Scottish art.' Among the artists whose work is discussed are John Latham, Simon Starling, Alan Johnston, Roderick Buchanan, Christine Borland, Joan Eardley, Alexander Moffat, Douglas Gordon, Graham Fagen, and many others.
