Painting With My Back to the World

Agnes Martin’s apparently minimal approach belied a deep conviction in the delicate and expressive power of art, often describing herself as painting with her back to the world.

Art Talk previously on at Tate Modern in City of London, United Kingdom.

Coinciding with Tate Modern’s exhibition, this event takes the artist’s practice and life as a prompt to explore the relationship between creative inspiration, the artist’s inner mind and the world. Bringing together curators, artists and scientists, this panel critically addresses some of the patterns and processes in Martin’s work, offering new insights into the relationship between creativity, perception and mental health.

Confirmed speakers include Frances Morris, Susan Aldworth and Patricia Townsend. The event is chaired by Steven Connor.

The event is followed by a drinks reception in Café 1.
