Event Details

Talk about the artists that came from the three evening classes a week run by the Scottish artist John Cooper, at the Bow and Bromley Evening Institute in East London.

During the interwar years from the mid-1920s, Cooper taught working people from the East End. Cooper was trained at the Slade art school, this brought in artists like Walter Sickert, the Camden Town painter and key British artist, who also taught the students and exhibited with them.

They exhibited at the major galleries of the day, the Whitechapel Art Gallery, the Tate Gallery and some artists were selected to represent Britain at the Venice Biennale. The lectures aim to show this group of talented artists, who were forgotten for many decades, but have now begun to be rediscovered in recent exhibitions.

Tickets are £26 per person for both lectures.

You can also attend the talks in person for £13 per person, on 4th and 11th March
