Drinks served after the lecture
Ashmolean Lecture Theatre
Popular art historian and lecturer Mary Acton examines the Post-War period in British Art, explaining how a questioning of modernism has led to some interesting developments, particularly in the context of land art. This is a period marked by a move away from traditional interpretations of landscape and it has been especially important in sculpture, as reflected in the work of British artists like Richard Long and David Nash. Behind the scenes, the Ashmolean continues to acquire modern works and this talk will make reference to British Art in the collection.
