How to be an early Patron: Emerging Artists and going beyond the Art Market

How key is consistency to an artist’s 5 year practice of emergence? How does the art market establish, recognise or limit emerging artists and to what extent does this effects collectors sensibilities? Is collecting emerging artists as an entry point into collecting at odds with safer options of collecting established artists prints? How are galleries hybridising their collections and cultivating new artists to shift considerations of value?

Modern British art and photography

How were modern British artists influenced by photography and what have photographers taken from modern British art? Many artists in the 20th century were fascinated by what aerial photography revealed about archaeology and the landscape, for instance. What other kinds of artistic discoveries has the medium led to – and how do painting and photography co-exist today?
David Boyd Haycock is a freelance art historian, author, curator and lecturer. His books include Paul Nash and A Crisis of Brilliance: Five Young British Artists and the Great War. He is working on a biography of Augustus John. Peter Hall is the exhibitions manager of the Lightbox in Woking, Surrey, and curator of the upcoming show, ‘Woman in Photography: A History of British Trailblazers’ Chaired by Fatema Ahmed, deputy editor ofApollo.

Increasingly, drawing intersects with other art forms such as performance, moving image and sculpture, questioning the primacy of one form over the other. How does an evolving understanding of drawing relate to the ways in which an artist’s body of work is contextualised and collected?

Painting occasional eureka: Revisiting Paul Feiler and the St Ives School

Painting, said Paul Feiler, is ‘precarious, troublesome, anxious-making’. And yet – just occasionally – it produces ‘a wonderful sense of eureka’. In this illustrated talk, with audio extracts from an interview with Feiler, writer and broadcaster Michael Bird will explore the artist’s life and work that contributed to the modern and abstract British Art scene from the 1940s to the 60s; drawing on Feiler’s relationship with contemporaries among the St Ives School including Peter LanyonRoger Hilton and Bryan Wynter. For all these artists – in different ways – painting was an intense process of self-discovery.
