Join Jane Simpkiss in Room 15 of The Courtauld Gallery for an informal talk about Jasper Johns, The Seasons (1984-91) as part of this year’s MA Curating Exhibition, There Not There.
There Not There brings together the work of twelve contemporary artists including Jasper Johns, Michael Craig-Martin and Runa Islam. Working in a variety of media including painting, photography and film, these artists have interrogated the boundary between the seemingly opposite notions of absence and presence. Despite their differences in approach, the artists share a common fascination with the ideas of disappearance, transformation and erasure. These themes emerge from the artists’ engagement with the natural world, the urban environment and human relationships.
