Laurence Figgis: (After) After

Laurence Figgis: (After) After


Laurence Figgis is an artist, writer and Lecturer in Fine Art Painting and Printmaking at The Glasgow School of Art (GSA), working in collage and with text/image relationships. With research-practice focusing on Rauschenberg’s Dante drawings (1958-60), Picasso’s Las Meninas series (1957), as well as 1960s Ladybird Book illustrations, Figgis will reinterpret such art historical melodramas, probing the place of kitsch and anachronism in the early twenty-first century.

Opening night: Thursday 10 August 5-7pm. Refreshments served, all welcome.

An artist’s talk will be held on Thursday 28 September 1-3pm. This is an opportunity to hear Laurence Figgis give an engaging and dynamic talk about visual narratives and his research-practice. Refreshments will be provided and everyone is welcome. Booking not required.
