Master Class: Dexter Dalwood
A new educational initiative launching this year as part of our annual Testing Ground for Art and Education, Testing Ground: Master Class invites leading international artists to share their expertise with a small group of emerging artists from around the country over a five day intensive, led by artist Doug Fishbone.
Join us each evening for a public lecture by the artists.
Tonight: Dexter Dalwood
Dexter Dalwood’s paintings collage together found imagery, fragmented narratives and multiple perspectives on events of the recent past. His representational style draws attention to questions of presence and absence, creating spaces void of people that provoke deeper reflection on memory and history.
Dalwood was born Bristol in 1960 and studied at Central St Martins and the Royal College of Art in the 1980s. He now lives and works in London. In 2010 he was nominated for the Turner Prize for his solo show at Tate St Ives which toured to CAC Malaga, Spain and FRAC, Reims, France, 2010. Other solo shows include Endless Night, Gagosian Gallery, Beverly Hills, USA, 2009; Recent History, Gagosian Gallery, London, UK, 2007 and group exhibitions including ARTfutures 2008, Bloomberg Space, London, UK, 2008; Insight? , Gagosian Gallery, Moscow, Russia, 2007; Reflections, Galleri Faurschou, Copenhagen, Denmark, 2006; and The Triumph of Painting Part 3, Saatchi Gallery, London, UK, 2005.
