Stephen Thorpe "'Art worlds' and 'art fields' in relation to his own practice and the contemporary London art scene"
Cultural Sociology event
As part of the MA in Cultural Sociology, artist Stephen Thorpe will be coming to the University of Exeter on Wednesday, 18th October, 2017. Stephen will be presenting on the subjects of 'art worlds' and 'art fields' in relation to his own practice and the contemporary London art scene more generally. This is an excellent opportunity for postgraduate students based in sociology, philosophy and anthropology, to gain insights into the nature of art markets, artistic practice, aesthetics and creativity more broadly, from the perspective of the artist. All are welcome. A note on the artist: Referred to by art dealer and patron Charles Saatchi as 'one to watch' and regarded as one of Britain's up and coming contemporary artists, examples of stephen's work can be found at the following: www.stephen-thorpe.com https://www.saatchiart.com/account/profile/154186 https://www.artsy.net/artist/stephen-thorpe
