Love Art at The Peninsula Presents “Bright Idea”
by Sir Michael Craig-Martin RA, in conversation with Tim Marlow from Britain’s Royal Academy of Arts
The University of Hong Kong’s Department of Fine Arts partners with The Peninsula Hong Kong for what promises to be a fascinating conversation with one of the leading figures of British conceptual art. Both as a hugely influential artist in his own right and as an esteemed teacher, Sir Michael Craig-Martin is celebrated for his time as a tutor at Goldsmiths College, University of London, between 1974 and 1988, and then again from 1994 to 2000. He is credited with having taught an emerging generation of artists who went on to become known as the Young British Artists or “YBAs”. This group included some of the biggest names in contemporary art today – Damien Hirst, Julien Opie, Sarah Lucas and Gary Hume – creating a legacy that earned Craig-Martin the nickname “The Godfather of Brit Art”.
In conversation with Tim Marlow, Artistic Director of the Royal Academy of Arts, Sir Craig-Martin will look back on his ground-breaking career at the forefront of British contemporary art.
This event coincides with the fifth edition of Art Basel in Hong Kong, and will take place in the Grand Hall of the Lee Shau Kee Lecture Centre at the University of Hong Kong on Monday, 20 March at 6:30pm, reaching arts students, fellow educators, artists and members of the public.
