Elizabeth Peyton talks to curator Lucy Dahlsen about her current exhibition Aire and Angels.
Elizabeth Joy Peyton (b.1965) is one of the preeminent artists working today. She paints still lifes and landscapes, but above all, portraits: of friends, lovers, heroes, admirations, inspirations and fascinations. Her subjects include artists, activists, actors, athletes, dancers, musicians, queens, princes, politicians and poets. Captured from life, memory, literature and imagination, through found images and photographs, amongst many things her art explores love, individuality, beauty and the passing of time.
Lucy Dahlsen is the curator of the exhibition Elizabeth Peyton: Aire and Angels and former Associate Curator, 20th Century and Contemporary at the National Portrait Gallery. Whilst at the Gallery, Lucy Dahlsen curated solo displays of work by contemporary artists including Njideka Akunyili Crosby, Samuel Fosso, Luc Tuymans and Thomas Price. She also co-curated the Gallery's exhibition Michael Jackson: On the Wall and was assistant curator on exhibitions including Howard Hodgkin: Absent Friends and Giacometti: Pure Presence.
Part of the programme of events complementing Elizabeth Peyton: Aire and Angels.
Priority booking for Gallery Members is open now. Public booking will open on Friday 8 November 2019.
