unintelligible truths 

In 1998 the Talbot Rice Gallery in Edinburgh presented an exhibition, curated by Pat Fisher, entitled ‘intelligible lies’. It featured the work of Victoria Morton, Carol Rhodes and Graeme Todd, all of whom had recently had, or were about to have, solo shows at the newly opened Andrew Mummery Gallery in London. The twentieth anniversary of ‘intelligible lies’ has provided an opportunity to revisit the exhibition and the questions that it asked.Topics addressed in the conversation, which is intended to be an open discussion in which members of the audience will be welcome to participate, will include changes in studio and exhibition practice, and how painters deal with issues of reality and illusion in their work.

One work each by Morton, Rhodes and Todd will be on display at A-M-G5 on the occasion of the conversation.

This event is free, but booking is essential in order to reserve a place. To book please email mail@a-m-g5.co.uk.
