Tate Liverpool Talk

Artist Lecture Series: Charline von Heyl

The German born New York based artist Charline Von Heyl delivers the second in a series of ‘Tate-Hope’ lectures in February 2012. Von Heyl  talks about the evolution of her work and her position in relation to contemporary art practice. The Tate – Hope Lecture Series is held in The Great Hall at Liverpool Hope’s Cornerstone campus in the city centre.

Von Heyl's paintings take cues from high art, popular culture, comics, and design, as well as from the slipstream of cultural oddities found around eccentric internet sites. She has never made studies for her paintings, and does not begin with a preconceived idea, allowing the works to be determined rather by the decisions that arise in the process of their making. She has described this drive towards abstraction as a desire to invent something that cannot be named and that challenges the eye in an unexpected way. 

Please note that this talk takes place at The Great Hall, The Cornerstone, Liverpool Hope University, Creative Campus, Haigh Street, Liverpool L3 8QB.
