Join us for the preview and book launch of Derek Boshier: Reinventor, where pop art pioneer Derek Boshier presents two new bodies of works.
Pop-Art pioneer Derek Boshier presents two brand new bodies of work for his much anticipated solo exhibition at Gazelli Art House. 7 Self Portraits sees Boshier reflect and reimagine his own artistic legacy; Sit/ Stand/ Knell – Global Warming, The Factory, and The Saints offers astute social commentary across intricate drawings.
The exhibition coincides with a survey exhibition of Boshier’s work at Wolverhampton Art Gallery Derek Boshier: Image in Revolt and the publication of a major new monograph Derek Boshier: Reinventor, published by Lund Humphries, edited by Helen Little, and featuring commentaries and reflections by leading contemporary artists, academics, curators and writers.
“Celebrating Boshier’s iconic, irreverent, and constantly evolving practice, the two exhibitions and recently published book presents a timely opportunity to look back and across the career of one of Britain’s foremost exponents of Pop art. Offering a lens through which to understand his wider practice, they speak to the legacy of Boshier’s art that has strived to expose and challenge society’s norms, values and taboos and call attention to the structures that influence how we see and express ourselves – and how we are seen by others.” — Helen Little
