PASMORE, John

The Developing Process: The Work of Victor Pasmore

Series:
Date: Wednesday 14 November 2001
Time: 18:00
Venue:
Running time: 55 mins

in 1954 the painter Victor Pasmore was invited to collaborate on a proposed new housing estate in Peterlee, County Durham. His involvement with the project was far-reaching, and lasted 23 years. In it he aimed at a complete synthesis of architecture and art, a synthesis perhaps best achieved in the Apollo Pavilion, the monumental concrete form that dominates the surrounding parkland. Unfortunately, what began as a symbol of hope for the future of suburban post-war living was, by the 1980s, derelict and neglected. To coincide with the AA exhibition 'The Developing Process: The Pasmore Pavilion at Peterlee', Victor Pasmore's son, John Pasmore, presents a personal view of the work of his father. Introduced by Alan Powers.



All lectures are open to members of the public, staff and students unless otherwise stated.
