To accompany his exhibition Gary Hume: Flashback from the Arts Council Collection at Leeds Art Gallery until April 15 will be in conversation with Professor Andrew Renton from Goldsmiths College. This event will offer insight into the work in the exhibition as well as background to the artist’s broader practice.

Gary Hume is one of Britain’s most important contemporary artists. He first gained international recognition in the early 1990s for his series of bold, abstract ‘door’ paintings’ which were based on the actual doors of St Bartholomew’s hospital in London. Flashback is a major monographic exhibition from the Arts Council Collection.

Professor Andrew Renton is a writer and curator. He is interested in the different languages and registers that might be possible in response to the work of art. As curator his recent concern has been with the ethical encounter with the object, its physicality and context.He has published a number of catalogues and books on contemporary art, including Technique Anglaise: Current Trends in British Art, Thames & Hudson, 1991, the first book to document the now-established Young British Artists phenomenon.
