Artists on ART

Many artists are reluctant to talk about their creative process, often with reason. Others have excelled in conveying indispensable ideas and insights through their writings, which can take many forms ā€“ diary jottings, lecture notes, manifestoes or treatisesā€¦ Our 2020 Lecture Series focuses on artists whose written commentaries and critiques are indispensable to any well-rounded understanding of their artistic achievements. Lecturers will examine ways artists have described their practices, analysed the work of their peers, responded to pressing issues of the times, and dealt with their own doubts and fears.

1: SUNDAY 1 March

Peter Kohane, Le Corbusier
