“After my degree show in 1993, three people came up to me and uttered the words ‘let’s do something…’ ” Bob and Roberta Smith, 2009
One of these invitations led to the long and productive relationship that Bob and Roberta enjoy with Beaconsfield, London. In the intervening sixteen years, Bob and Roberta have contributed to various Beaconsfield projects, at home and abroad, and are currently 'in residence' for one whole year. The spacious premises in Vauxhall have been utilised as a prolific site of production and are now about to open as Bob and Roberta Smith's Factory Outlet.
This is the first in the Beaconsfield series Phase, which turns the spotlight on mid-career artists with whom the organisation has had a significant past relationship.
Beaconsfield is a Regularly Funded Organisation of the Arts Council of England. Check the website for pre-publication price of exclusive, limited edition etching.
