IAN STEPHENSON : UN PUNTO DI PARTENZA
Nov 13 - Dec 13, 2019
For the final exhibition of 2019, Chelsea Space presents a solo show of the work of Ian Stephenson (1934-2000). A former tutor at Chelsea School of Art, (1959-89), Stephenson studied under Sir Lawrence Gowing at Kings College Newcastle (1951-56), to become a Studio Demonstrator on the ‘Basic Course’, the now iconic experiment in art education founded by the artists Victor Pasmore and Richard Hamilton.
 
The exhibition focuses on a series of collages by Stephenson, commenced when travelling through Italy, in 1959 on a Boise Scholarship with his wife Kate Brown, a fellow student. The works, selected by Kate, reflect the influences they both experienced abroad, and the transitions they would then make into their adult careers, as artists, and educators.
