Students and staff are invited to a talk by Turner Prize winning artist Jeremy Deller introduced by UAL Chair, designer and artist Scott King.
Jeremy Deller’s practice focuses on fandom, society, politics, pop culture and ‘the vernacular’. His most well known works include ‘The Battle of Orgreave’ (2001), a re-enactment of the brutal clash between miners and police during the 1984-5 Miners’ Strike, and ‘Acid Brass’, an on-going collaboration between Deller and the Williams Fairey Brass Band fusing traditional brass band music with acid house and Detroit techno.
Jeremy Deller’s work has been exhibited extensively worldwide at such institutions as Tate Modern, London, The Museum of Modern Art, New York and Palais de Tokyo, Paris. He won the Turner Prize in 2004 and represented Britain at the 2013 Venice Biennale with his exhibition ‘English Magic’ now on tour around Britain.
Scott King trained as a graphic designer, working as Art Director of i-D and Creative Director of Sleazenation magazines. He occasionally produces work under the banner CRASH! with writer and historian Matt Worley. His work has been exhibited extensively worldwide and clients have included such iconic figures as the Pet Shop Boys, Morrissey, Michael Clark and Malcolm McLaren.
This event is now fully booked but returns may be available on the door on a first come, first served basis.
