Our Saturday Study event accompanies The Courtauld Gallery’s exhibition of recent and new paintings and prints by Peter Doig (10 February – 29 May 2023). One of the most renowned British contemporary figurative artists, Doig lived and worked in Trinidad since 2000 before re-establishing himself in London in 2021. Our lecturers will set Doig into the wider context of post WWII British figurative painting before exploring his working practices and the themes of his large-scale expressive landscapes and figure paintings of Canadian and Trinidadian subjects, and of the recent experience of cultural relocation.
With exhibition curator Dr Barnaby Wright, independent curator and art historian Catherine Lampert and Dr Catherine Howe, Research Officer at Zaha Hadid Foundation. Moderator: Dr Anne Puetz (The Courtauld)
The event fee for on-campus attendance includes refreshments and one free admission to The Gallery’s permanent collection and The Morgan Stanley Exhibition: Peter Doig valid until 29 May.
