Join Andrew Renton, Professor of Curating at Goldsmiths, University of London, for an introduction to the exhibition Roy Oxlade, on view at Alison Jacques Gallery until 11 January 2020. Renton will offer insights into the paintings and drawings produced by the British painter throughout his six-decade career, which were rooted by Oxlade’s experiences of the physical world around him. Oxlade’s commitment to his creative process, which was fuelled by instinct, spontaneity and immediacy, will also be explored in this talk.
As Professor of Curating at Goldsmiths, Renton was involved in the development of the college’s new art gallery, Goldsmiths Centre for Contemporary Art, which opened last year. He was previously the founding director of Marlborough Contemporary Gallery in London.
As well as curating a number of shows internationally, Renton is the author and editor of numerous articles, books and monographs on art. He is a board member and trustee of several arts organisations including the Showroom, the Drawing Room, Glasgow International and the Beckett International Foundation. He has advised private collections and institutions, including the British Government Art Collection.
The talk will take place at 6.30pm. The event is free, but places are limited. Please RSVP: firstname.lastname@example.org.
