Stuart Pearson Wright in Conversation with Jock McFadyen RA

Wednesday 23 January

Howard Theatre
Free. Booking essential.

‘Oh dear, here’s someone who can draw. How the hell is he going to get on in the art world?’

Jock McFadyen RA first met Stuart Pearson Wright in the classroom at his weekly seminar at the Slade. He remembers Wright as ‘a greyhound out of the traps’, hungry for success and anxious to be able to make work. The friendship endured past art school and Wright's early success with the BP Portrait Award, with the two working in adjoining studios in Hackney for a time.

Join us for a discussion about the nature of art, ‘making it’ as an artist, and the allure of the winning formula.
