TALKS | Geraint Evans – Art in the City

Wednesday, 24th October 2018, 00:00 to 00:00


University of the West of England and Arnolfini present the first in their 2018 Art in the City lecture series – with the London-based painter of landscapes where wilderness and first-world fabrications knot unsettlingly together.

Nudist hikers, heavy metal campers and ornamental hermits occupy Evans’ painted landscapes, an interface where built and natural environments meet in a complex perception of the wilderness. Ever evolving technologies, mass tourism and other themes render Evans’ interest in the ways we encounter the natural world and the social and cultural structures we construct in order to comprehend it. 

 

Geraint Evans

Evans’ solo exhibitions include Newport Museum and Art Gallery; Wilkinson Gallery, London; Chapter, Cardiff and CASA, Salamanca, Spain. He has been a resident artist at the Banff Centre for the Arts, Canada and, in 2003 received a Pollock-Krasner Foundation Award and the Berwick Gymnasium Fellowship. 

 

UWE and Arnolfini are proud to partner for the 2018 Art in the City lecture series – a curated series of talks by artists, and perspectives on urban life in the 21st century.
