£5 / Free to ICA Members
Join us for a lunchtime talk with artist duo Cullinan Richards in conversation with John Slyce.
Cullinan Richards is a London-based artistic collaboration between Charlotte Cullinan and Jeanine Richards. Since 1997 they have been producing work ranging from painting to performance to film fusing personal histories with fiction so as to confront shared social and cultural issues. Recent solo exhibitions have included Girl Rider at Warwick Art Centre (2008), Objects from the Old Regime at Ritter/ Zamet (2005), Curating Degree Zero Archive at Imperial College (2005) and group shows have included Building Dwelling Thinking at Laura Bartlett Gallery (2008), Edge of the Real at Whitechapel Gallery (2004) and Summer Daze at South London Gallery (2005). In 2006, they have established Savage School Window Gallery, a gallery exhibiting works from a window in their studio on Vyner Street, London. Together they were on the panel of selectors for the Bloomberg New Contemporaries 2012.
John Slyce has written and lectured extensively on contemporary art, post-studio practices and the legacies of conceptualism in the UK and abroad. He has written catalogue essays on the work of Sarah Sze, Gillian Wearing, Sarah Jones, David Shrigley, Darren Almond, Michael Landy, Carey Young, Allen Ruppersberg, Rodney Graham, Pipilotti Rist, Charles Avery and Becky Beasley and regularly contributes essays, reviews and interviews to the major art magazines and journals.
John Slyce is a fine art tutor in painting and research at the Royal College of Art and a senior lecturer at Christie's Education in their MA program in Modern and Contemporary art and artworld practice. His contact with the complex practice of Cullinan Richards reaches back to its start in the 1990s.
