Contemporary Artists: Anthony Gormley and Anish Kapoor Rosalind Whyte Wednesday 14 March 2018

Antony Gormley and Anish Kapoor are amongst the most well known sculptors working in Britain today and both have had major commissions for public works of art.  With a wide range of inspirations and motifs, the work of these two artists provides an interesting insight into contemporary views and preoccupations in Britain.  This lecture will look at examples of both artists’ work, exploring the common ground between them, as well as the differences in style, technique and themes.

Our lecturer, Rosaline Whyte has a BA and MA from Goldsmith’s College, and an MA (distinction) from Birkbeck College. She is an experienced guide at Tate Britain, Tate Modern, the Royal Academy and Greenwich. She also lectures at both the Tates and Dulwich Picture Gallery, as well as to independent art societies and on cruises.
