Cass Fine Art: Lunchbox lecture by Alex Edwards

The Solid and the Ephemeral, a lunchbox lecture by the artist and Cass alumnus Alex Edwards

The work of artist and Cass alumnus Alex Edwards deals with the contrasting physicality of the solid (architecture, stone) and the ephemeral (performance, fabric, paper). It often has a playfulness and sense of optimism and the artist draws inspiration from architecture, design and conceptual art of the 1960s and works with print, sculpture, performance and installation.

Alex will reflect on his art practice since graduating in 2010 and how his recent experience of a PGCE course at Goldsmiths has impacted his approach to making work. The talk will hopefully open up a discussion on the ways to continue your practice after graduating, the role of teacher and students and forms of collaborative art making.

Alex (b.1987) graduated from BA Fine Art at the the Cass in 2010 and is a member of ESP in Birmingham. He lives and works in London and has exhibited work in the UK and Croatia.
