Brice Marden and Gary Hume in conversation with Tim Marlow at the Royal Academy, London, United Kingdom.

Saturday, September 30, 2017, 11AM–12PM BST.

Join the Royal Academy for this rare opportunity to hear two major artists discuss their approach to painting, their inspiration and the continuing evolution of their work.

A singular painter who has extended and refined the traditions of lyrical abstraction, Brice Marden is a master of colour and touch, from the subtle, shimmering monochromes of his earlier career to the calligraphic compositions that have characterised the last three decades. His work has been the subject of numerous solo exhibitions at galleries all over the world, including the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam, Whitechapel Art Gallery, and Serpentine Gallery both in London and the Museum of Modern Art in New York. Based in New York, Marden is on a rare visit to London for his new exhibition, opening at Gagosian Gallery on 4 October. The exhibition features ten new paintings using terre verte, an iron silicate/clay pigment which Marden uses as both medium and subject as he explores its chromatic nuances, while reflecting on the material exigencies of painting itself.
