Artist Philip Guston made paintings and drawings that captured the anxious and turbulent world he was witnessing. His early work included murals and paintings addressing racism in America and wars abroad.
This panel discussion will use the politically motivated public work of Philip Guston as a starting point for a discussion around muralism with insight from experts, artists and activists. Chaired by Senior Curator Mike Wellen this event will consider questions such as; how have murals functioned historically? What is the role of public art? And what are the limitations of mural painting?
Include an optional private view of the Philip Guston exhibition for an additional cost. The exhibition will be open after the talk until 22.30.
