Bankside Gallery £10 / 7 for Friends & Students 6 - 8pm

Edward Bawden is hardly a forgotten artist, but how well do we really know him? Ahead of the large-scale retrospective of Bawden's career which opens at Dulwich Picture Gallery in May 2018, curator James Russell explores the life and work of this remarkable artist and designer. Drawing on several years' research, James will introduce previously unseen works and look at old favourites in new ways, examining Bawden's influences and evolving technique without losing sight of the artist's most enduring characteristic: his (occasionally wicked) sense of humour.
