Join us for a panel discussion at the London Art Fair
Friday 23 January: 2.30pm–3.30pm
What role does the body play in British painting today? Is there still a place for traditional skills such as anatomy drawing, or for genres like ‘the nude’? How is the influence of modern masters, such as Lucian Freud and Francis Bacon, revealed when contemporary artists represent the human figure? And is the body still an important subject for artists working today?
This Friday, Apollo editor Thomas Marks will be joined by Simon Martin (Artistic Director, Pallant House Gallery), Marco Livingstone (art historian and curator), and artists Caroline Walker and David Dawson to discuss the importance of the body in contemporary British art.
