Austerity to Prosperity: British Art from 1945 to now
The story of British art after World War II is one of often unexpected change and evolution, closely related to the country’s social, economic and political development from the austerity of the postwar years to the greater prosperity of the 1960s and beyond.
This series of five lectures and discussions will explore artistic tendencies such as Kitchen Sink realism, St Ives abstraction, Pop Art, conceptualism, New Generation sculpture, the YBAs, and examine the work of artists as diverse as Bacon, Hockney, Caro, Gormley, and Hirst.
