Derek Boshier is an artist who has worked in many media: painting and drawing, printmaking, installation art, books, film, and theatre design. The lecture offers a tour through his long career: from his involvement with British Pop Art in the early 1960s, through conceptual and political art in the 1970s (including work with David Bowie and the Clash), to his return to figurative painting in Texas in the 1980s, followed by the work of the 1990s including his 'Journey/Israel Project', an installation at the Holocaust Museum in Houston in 1998.
He is represented by Flowers Galleries, London and New York; Steven Wolf Fine Arts, San Francisco; Galerie du Centre, Paris; and Cardwell & Jimmerson, Los Angeles.
