Sue Tate on Pauline Boty: Pop Artist and Woman

Thursday 31st October 2013 6pm - 7:15pm Bristol, Foyles, 6 Quakers Friars, Cabot Circus, Bristol, BS1 3BU Literary Event, Free Event

Pauline BotyJoin Sue Tate, the author of Pauline Boty: Pop Artist and Woman, for an evening to celebrate the publication of the first in-depth study of the life and work of one of Britain's most distinctive and under-appreciated Pop artists.

Pauline Boty (1938-66) was a talented and knowing Pop artist and also a beautiful, hip and charismatic player on the 60s art's scene. She studied at the RCA, the centre of British Pop, and was the friend and colleague of Peter Blake and David Hockney, with whom she exhibited. She produced a vibrant body of collages and paintings that enriched Pop from a female perspective. Yet when she died in 1966, from cancer aged only 28, she disappeared from cultural view for nearly 30 years.

Sue Tate's richly illustrated book reinstates Boty at the forefront of British Pop, and at this exclusive Bristol event, the author will give an illustrated talk about Boty's distinctive contribution. Join her for a glass of wine to celebrate this unique publication, and buy a signed copy of the book for just £15 - available exclusively from Foyles at Cabot Circus.

Dr Sue Tate is a Research Fellow at UWE and a freelance art historian. She won an Arts Council grant to find lost works by Pauline Boty and co-curated the first full retrospective of her work, currently running at Wolverhampton Art Gallery, and traveling to Pallant House, Chichester in November 2013. She will be appearing in a Culture Show programme Women of Pop to be broadcast in the New Year.

This event is free but booking is advised - please email reserve your space, or call the shop directly on 0117 376 3975.
