In conversation: Sir Michael Craig-Martin RA
As part of The New RA for teachers event, join us for a lively in conversation with Sir Michael Craig-Martin RA and Curator and Head of the RA Schools Eliza Bonham Carter.
Sir Michael Craig-Martin RA studied Fine Art at the Yale University School of Art and Architecture and, on completion of his studies in 1966 he moved to London, where he lives today. Craig-Martin had his first one-man exhibition at the Rowan Gallery in London in 1969. Since then, he has shown regularly both in the UK and abroad. He is also widely recognised as an influential teacher and is best known for the period he spent teaching at Goldsmiths, London. His former students include many of those artists who made a significant impact on the art scene in the 1990s, including Damien Hirst, Gary Hume and Sarah Lucas.
Eliza Bonham Carter became Curator and Head of the RA Schools in 2006. Previously, she was Head of the Department of Fine Art at The University of Reading, taught at Loughborough School of Art and at De Montfort University and has been visiting artist at numerous university art departments across the UK.
