Join us for a unique event on Philip Guston

This conversation between writers Olivia Laing and Musa Mayer is a rare opportunity to hear about the life and work of artist Philip Guston. This event will also seek to explore the artist's relationship to writing and poetry, and how its influences can be found in his work.

Philip Guston is the first major retrospective on the artist in the UK in nearly 20 years. Guston was a complex artist who took inspiration from the nightmarish world around him to create new and surprising imagery. The exhibition explores how his paintings bridged the personal and the political, the abstract and the figurative, the humorous and the tragic.
