Chris Gollon Exhibition: Being Human

8th May 2009, 09:00 to 28th June 2009, 17:00, IAP Fine Art, London

Established British artist Chris Gollon was invited to become a Fellow and First Artist in Residence (Jan-Mar 2009) at the prestigious Institute of Advanced Study, Durham University, and to work with some of the world's leading academics to describe 'being human' in the 21st century. Gollon’s powerful and formally innovative paintings first came to the attention of the Directors of the IAS in 2007, and together with leading creative thinkers from 3 continents he was invited to take part in 'Being Human', a major international research project straddling all disciplines from Arts & Humanities, to Sciences and Social Sciences.

This exhibition at IAP Fine Art is accompanied by a 52-page colour catalogue, with texts by art historian Tamsin Pickeral, and Directors and Fellows of the IAS. 'BEING HUMAN' paintings by CHRIS GOLLON is on sale at £10 from IAP Fine Art, London during the Being Human exhibition, and is also available by post (£10 plus £2.50 p&p in UK, or £6 worldwide).
