Artist's Profile

Ian Stephenson, who died in 2000, was a seminal figure in British painting, and a key figure in the art movement of the 1960s.

Tate's Catherine Stout will set the scene, looking at the cultural context of 1960s Britain, with Clive Phillpot contributing a more intimate look at Stephenson's work.

Catherine Stout was co-curator of Tate Britain's 2004 exhibition 'Art and the '60s: This Was Tomorrow'.

The Artist's Profile is from 6-7.30pm. It is followed by a showing of Blow-Up.


It was the changing focus and scale of Stephenson's paintings which inspired the theme of Michelangelo Antonioni's only British film, 'Blow-Up'.

Stephenson's works appear alongside Vanessa Redgrave, David Hemmings, Jane Birkin and Sarah Miles in this seminal film from 1966.

Showing from 7.30-9.30pm
