Eminent Royal Academicians examine the significance of Abstract Expressionism in relation to their work and the art world then and now.

Nearly 60 years since the last major collective survey in the UK of the Abstract Expressionism movement, we bring together an esteemed panel of artists to reevaluate this artistic phenomenon.

Basil Beattie RA, Mali Morris RA, Paul Huxley RA and Christopher Le Brun PRA discuss their personal responses to Abstract Expressionism and how the new approaches to composition, colour and scale influenced and impacted on the visual arts both then and now. Examining how artists and the arts world internationally responded to Abstract Expressionism, they consider the significance of this influential movement of the 20th century and why its impact still resounds today. The event will be chaired by the RA’s Artistic Director, Tim Marlow.

All ticket prices include one complimentary drink at a reception following the event.
