LECTURE: Academy Lectures - Ian Whittlesea

ian-whittlesea-100WEDNESDAY 3 March 2010, 16.00 onwards at Liverpool School of Art and Design, LJMU (Free entry to all)
Ian Whittlesea was born in 1967, studied painting at Chelsea College of Art and sculpture at the Royal College, and lives in London. His work is often concerned with words, and with the lives and work of other artists and writers. It involves putting information in space, or taking it from the page and into the world, where it makes new relationships between biography, reading, writing and looking at words. It assumes many forms: from painstaking paintings that can take years to make, to ephemeral posters and transient projections.
