Richard Deacon

Introduced by Matthew Moser-Clark

Saturday 23 November, 2–3pm, Headley Lecture Theatre

In this special event, Richard Deacon will be introduced by Matthew Moser-Clark, sculptor and recent graduate from the Royal College of Art, and co-founder of artisjustaword. Deacon has been a leading figure in British sculpture since the 1980s when he attended St Martins School of Art, the Royal College of Art and Chelsea School of Art. He won the Turner Prize in 1987 and represented Wales at the Venice Biennale in 2007. Deacon has consistently described himself as a ‘fabricator’ rather than a sculptor, a maker of things who places emphasis on the construction and manipulation of materials. In 2014 he will have a major retrospective exhibition at Tate Britain.
