What: In Conversation: Jo Applin and James Boaden on Lee Lozano

Where: Hauser & Wirth

When: Tuesday 10th

We only heard of the late conceptual artists Lee Lozano very recently, and so the launch of Jo Applin’s book ‘Lee Lozano: Not Working’ seems like a very well timed opportunity for us to learn more. Lozano is perhaps best known for ‘Dropout Piece’ (1970), a conceptual artwork and dramatic gesture with which she quit the art world. Shortly afterwards she announced she would have no further contact with other women. Her ‘dropout’ and ‘boycott of women’ lasted until her death in 1999, by which time she was all but forgotten. The discussion will explore Lee Lozano’s work in the context of 1960s social and political upheaval, feminism and sexuality, as well as her recent return to the limelight.

What: Diane Chappalley & Antonia Showering - The present is already gone

Where: Chalton Gallery

When: Thursday 12th

From the 12th to the 21st April, Diane Chappalley and Antonia Showering will present a joint painting exhibition at Chalton Gallery. Both artists use painting to investigate their personal histories (which include for both, coincidentally, roots in Switzerland and education at City and Guilds of London Art School followed by the Slade School of Fine Art). Although their paintings are very different, both artists look inward to create paintings that reimagine the past.
