Join us for an online talk with Dr Angela Griffith discussing the work of George Wallace in the context of post-war art in Britain.
This lecture is to mark the reopening of our Print Gallery exhibition George Wallace: Reflections on Life, a celebration of the life and work of Dublin-born artist George Wallace. In the 1950s, Wallace worked in the modernist style and this is evident in his etchings of the clay pits of St Austell. To contextualise Wallace’s work, Dr Angela Griffith will speak about post-war art in Britain, with an emphasis on modernist British artists working in Cornwall during the 1950s.
Dr Angela Griffith is Assistant Professor, Department of History of Art and Architecture, at Trinity College Dublin. Her research examines the history, contexts and theories of the printed image in Britain and Ireland from the beginnings of modernist fine art printmaking in the 1850s to contemporary multidisciplinary print practices.
Please note: Booking will close an hour before the start of the event. This is an online event via ZOOM. A receipt will be sent after purchase, and a ZOOM link will be sent via email to all ticket holders the day before the event. Please contact [email protected] if you have any questions.
