Revisited Lecture: Tim Renshaw

Painting in Architecture

Date/Time: Wednesday 3 June 2020

Tim Renshaw Revisited

In his presentation Tim Renshaw will discuss his recent painting and the exhibitions he has co-organised with the artist led group Outside Architecture. The talk will focus on the relationship between the formal thinking in his work and ideas of space that derive from the long history of modern architecture. The talk will consider why certain forms and ideas about architecture matters to his painting and why these are a resource for developing what might be termed a critical formalism in painting. He will also consider the role exhibition making plays in producing a context that informs his individual practice.
