Ian Wallace in conversation with John Roberts

Renowned Canadian artist Ian Wallace will be in conversation with art critic John Roberts to celebrate the launch of a comprehensive new publication on Wallace’s work by Black Dog Publishing.

Please join us for a conversation between Ian Wallace and John Roberts on Thursday 22 November 2012, from 6.30–8 pm at WORK, 10a Acton Street, London WC1X 9NG.

Ian Wallace has played an important role in contemporary art over the past 50 years, from his early experiments with minimalism to his production of serial photographic ‘tableaux’ and his subsequent juxtapositions of photography with monochrome painting. A key figure in photoconceptualism alongside Jeff Wall, Rodney Graham and Stan Douglas, Wallace has consistently demonstrated conceptual rigour and aesthetic innovation. Through both his practice and position as social historian, critic and educator, Wallace’s influence extends to film and literature, institutional critique, architecture, urban development, gender relations, environmentalism and civil disobedience.

John Roberts is Professor of Art and Aesthetics at the University of Wolverhampton and an internationally distinguished writer and curator. He has authored numerous works of critical theory including The Intangibilities of Form, Philosophizing the Everyday and The Necessity of Errors.

RSVP is essential as seating is limited. Please email press@workgallery.co.uk to reserve a place.

Following the talk Wallace will be signing copies of his book, which will be available to purchase at PAPERWORK for the special price of £30 (RRP £39.95).
