James Boaden to speak on Jasper Johns at The Courtauld Institute

Posted on 15 September 2014

James Boaden will be presenting a lecture at the Courtauld Institute to coincide with the current 'Jasper Johns: Regrets' exhibition.

This lecture aims to situate the new works by Jasper Johns, on display in The Courtauld Gallery (Jasper Johns: Regrets, 12 September - 14 December 2014), within the wider scope of the artist's work and to outline some of the connections it makes with the medium of photography. The works are all developed from a photograph retrieved from Francis Bacon’s studio of Lucian Freud – the works by Johns represent an unusual foray into using photography as part of his working process and raise pertinent questions about the persistence of physical photographic prints in a digital age.

The lecture takes place on Thursday, 2 October 2014 at 6pm in the Kenneth Clark Lecture Theatre.  Admission is free and everyone is welcome.
