Eileen Hogan: Personal Geographies

Opening Lecture
May 8, 2019


Eileen Hogan’s career began when she joined Camberwell School of Art and Crafts at the age of sixteen in 1962. In planning her exhibition at the Center and thinking about the span of decades it represents, Hogan took the opportunity to analyze and clarify the themes and subject matter that have been her consistent sources of inspiration and motivation.

In this lecture, Hogan explores her commitment to painting and to working figuratively, even during years when both the medium and the approach were considered deeply unfashionable by the dominant sections of the art world.
