Join artist and tutor, Nick Pearson as he takes you on a virtual tour of Tate Modern’s Modigliani exhibition which was in situ November 2017 – April 2018.
During his brief and turbulent life, Amedeo Modigliani (whom Jean Cocteau called ‘the last Bohemian’) developed a unique and instantly recognizable pictorial style. Though he had little success in his lifetime, his emotionally intense portraits and enigmatic nudes are now among the best-loved paintings of the 20th century. Enjoy the work of this fascinating Italian artist from your own home, with a commentary on his life and Nick’s thoughts on his art.
Payment is by BACs or cheque. Please contact Nick directly via email email@example.com and he’ll let you know how to secure your place. If you don’t have or have never used Zoom, let Nick know and he can show you how to download it and get started.
Nick’s virtual tour of Tate Modern’s Modigliani exhibition takes the form of illustrated slide lectures. If you sign up, you’ll be sent a pdf with high-resolution images that you can easily flick through on screen, or print out and follow as he takes to the Zoom floor with projected images on his studio wall. These projected, filmed and transmitted images won’t be as sharp as those he’ll be sending you on the pdf, but will allow him to point things out as he speaks, in an attempt to make the presentation as much like a live lecture as possible.
About the Tutor
Nick Pearson is an internationally exhibited contemporary artist whose practice encompasses sculpture, drawing and photographic work. His simple interventions and appropriations of the familiar things that surround us (made uncanny by way of his approach and working practices) deal with the language, the possible associations and the status of ‘ordinary’ objects. Nick first studied on the Art & Design Foundation Course at Leeds (Jacob Kramer) College of Art and continued his studies at The Polytechnic Wolverhampton and Stourbridge College of Art.
He lectures on modern art and design history and runs other, short art & design units at London College of Contemporary Arts, OPEN Ealing and Richmond Adult Community College.
