Derek Boshier first came to prominence with his paintings as a
student at the Royal College of Art in London in the early 1960s,
with fellow students David Hockney, Allen Jones, R.B. Kitaj, and
others in the British Pop Art movement. Subsequently he has used
other media, including drawing, printmaking, film, books, three
dimensional objects, installations, and photography among them. His
graphic design with popular music groups such as The Clash and
David Bowie has brought his work to a wider audience. This
exhibition features his most recent series of paintings with a
forty-year selection of other work across various mediums.
Opening Reception: September 30, 4-6pm.
After the reception, the artist will have a conversation with
curator William Kaizen, Assistant Professor of Art History and
Media Studies in the Department of Art and Design. As part of the
conversation, several of Mr. Boshier's films will be screened. The
exhibition will run through October 30th.
