Abstract

Expanded Painting Workshop: Terry Atkinson Wednesday 16th March 2011 – Studio C02, Edinburgh College of Art Expanded Painting are delighted to be collaborating with the artist Terry Atkinson for our first workshop in Edinburgh. Terry was a founding member of Fine-Artz (1963) and later of Art & Language (1968-74). He has had many international shows with the group, including Documenta V, 1972. As Art & Language he taught at Coventry School of Art & Design (CSAD) until 1973, before leaving the group in 1974. Terry went on to become an equally influential lecturer in fine art at the University of Leeds. Terry has exhibited work at the Venice Biennale 1984 and was a Turner Prize nominee in 1985. He has had many one person shows in the U.K. and abroad, with his last big retrospective show being at Kunstwerke, Berlin in 1995. Other shows include an earlier large museum semi-retrospective at the Irish Museum of Modern Art, Dublin, Soro Museum, Denmark and Cornerhouse, Manchester during 1992. His more recent one-person Gallery shows took place in 1995 at Archivio Di Nuovo Scrittura in Milan, and Galleria Inga-Pin, also in Milan; Norwich Gallery 1996 (touring to Edinburgh and Budapest during 1996-7); Brighton University Gallery November 1996; and a retrospective at Silkeborg Museum, Denmark, March 1997.
