A rare opportunity to join an online discussion event with the internationally renowned artist John Walker, in conversation with a panel of artists and academics exploring the trajectory of Walker’s practice, his inspirations and influences.
22 March – 21 April 2023
The impact of the work of British-born artist John Walker has resonated for over 50 years. His unique and imaginative painterly language has influenced generations of artists. Walker represented England at the 1972 Venice Biennale, won the 1976 John Moores Painting Prize, had extensive survey shows at both the Tate and Hayward galleries and was nominated for the Turner Prize in 1985. His work is represented in collections across the world.

His work is permeated by a sense of overload and exuberance and characterised by a penchant for sheer entropy.
