Derek Jarman, PROTEST!
PROTEST! is a major retrospective of the work of acclaimed British artist and filmmaker Derek Jarman (1942-1994), marking 25 years since his death. This is the first time that the diverse strands of his practice will be brought together in over 20 years.
PROTEST! captures Jarman’s engagement with both art and society, as well as his contemporary concerns with political protest and personal freedoms arising from the AIDS crisis. Major bodies of work, from the 1960s to the 1990s, have been brought together; many of which have never been seen in public before. See more information here
English artist Derek Jarman studied at the Slade School of Art, London, in the early 60s, and was part of a group of young painters who embodied a changing mood in British art. From the late 1960s Jarman worked in set design. In 1976 he produced his first feature film. In socially conservative Britain, his work made queer lives and history visible. From the 1980s, Jarman made music videos with artists including The Smiths, Marianne Faithful, Bob Geldof, Marc Almond, the Pet Shop Boys and Suede.View Artist
