Please join us for the next in our series of 'In Conversations', sited in the context of new paintings and works on paper by Neil Farber at Pippy Houldsworth Gallery. The talk will address expanded practices of drawing, focusing on the relationship between abstraction and figuration. Gavin Delahunty, Head of Exhibitions and Displays at Tate Liverpool, and Dr Tobias Burg, Curator of Prints and Drawings, Museum Folkwang, Essen, will be in conversation with artists Ruth Claxton and Rachel Goodyear.
Gavin Delahunty is Head of Exhibitions & Displays at Tate Liverpool. Previously at MIMA Middlesbrough Institute of Modern Art, he led the Art Fund International project, in consultation with The Drawing Center, New York, focusing on post-war drawing from the Americas.
Dr Tobias Burg is Curator of Prints and Drawings at the Museum Folkwang, Essen.
Ruth Claxton works with a variety of media, in particular reconfiguring or altering pre-existing objects in order to create objects and installations which consider what it is to look, see or experience. Recent exhibitions include solo shows at Site Santa FE, USA; Spike Island, Bristol; Ikon Gallery, Birmingham; Grundy Gallery, Blackpool; Oriel Davies, Newtown, Wales; Faye Fleming and Partner, Geneva, Switzerland; and Ingleby, Edinburgh.
Rachel Goodyear's drawings, sculptures and animations create worlds of carefully constructed coincidences, in which nothing is in its right place, nor is really as it seems. Goodyear currently has a major solo exhibition at Yorkshire Sculpture Park, Wakefield. She has recently exhibited at the ICA, London; Tate Liverpool; The Drawing Room, London; Nassauischer Kunstverein, Wiesbaden, Germany; and Contemporary Art Society, London.
The event will begin at 7pm with drinks and viewing at the gallery from 6.30pm. Places are limited so please RSVP to Claire Nichols on +44 (0)20 7734 7760 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
