Elisabeth Frink: Lectures

WHEN MODERN ARCHITECTURE GOT HIGH: THE POST-WAR REALISATION OF THE MODERNIST ARCHITECTURAL PROJECT
Wednesday 2 December
6 - 7pm

Dr. Steve Parnell, architect and architectural critic

The reconstruction of Britain in the immediate post-war years was a golden age for architects as architecture represented the possibility of actually building a new world, a promised utopia. Setting Frink’s public commissions in context, the lecture will explore how architects responded to this challenge with reference to some of the defining moments and buildings of the 1950s and ‘60s.

THE SHAPE OF FAITH
Wednesday 27 January 2016
6 - 7pm

Revd Dr. Richard Davey, Co-ordinating Chaplain, Nottingham Trent University

From her first public work or the St John Bosco Catholic Church in Woodley, Reading, to the Risen Christ on the west façade of Liverpool Cathedral, Frink undertook a number of commissions for churches and cathedrals throughout her career. In his lecture Dr. Richard Davey will discuss these commissions within the wider context of Frink's own work and the developing relationship between the church and modern artists in the second half of the 20th century.
