• ONLINE Eduardo Paolozzi: Pop Art & Design

This event has been rescheduled from 27 May 2020 to 3 November 2020 at 5pm. This talk will now take place online. You will receive an email with more details on how to join this talk.

Eduardo Paolozzi (1924-2005) one of the pioneers of pop art, is known for his sculptures, collages and prints which challenged artistic convention from the 1950s through to the Swinging Sixties and the London art scene of the 1990s.

Less well known are his textile designs, especially his Hammer Prints collaboration with avant-garde photographer Nigel Henderson, and his powerful influence as a teacher. From 1949 to 1955, Paolozzi was Tutor for Textile Design at the Central School of Arts and Crafts in London where he first taught Terence Conran, later becoming his lifelong friend and mentor.

Join Fiona Menzies, Archivist at National Galleries Scotland and expert on the Paolozzi Collections, as she highlights the artist’s own generous donation of work to the Galleries as well as more recent gifts which highlight Paolozzi as one of the most innovative and irreverent artists of the 20th century.
