Robert Holyhead 2014


Special spotlight talks with curators, writers and guests

Taking place in front of the artworks, these special talks by our curators, invited guests and writers give an individual interpretation of the temporary exhibitions and the Modern Art and St Ives display.

For our August A Closer Look we are pleased to welcome painter Robert Holyhead who will be talking about his own practice and connections to the works of Patrick Heron, on display in our exhibition. Holyhead contributed to the exhibition catalogue for the exhibition through his new essay What is Seen. Holyhead lives and works in London.

In July 2018 he will undertake a residency at SoART in Austria. He is represented by Galerie Max Hetzler, Berlin and Paris. Solo Exhibitions include: Galerie Max Hetzler, Paris, 2016; PARTS Project, The Hague, 2016; Galerie Max Hetzler, Berlin, 2014; PEER, London, 2012; Karsten Schubert, London, 2009, 2010 and 2012.
