Comment Introduction - Gauguin was a prolific storyteller and a skillful manipulator of his own image. Inspired by the first major exhibition in the UK of Gauguin's work for over 50 years, this study day explores myths of the artist from Gauguin to the present day, and some pervasive stereotypes of the idea of the 'artist-genius'. It combines art historical research and debates by leading scholars with insights and analysis by the exhibition curators. It also includes presentations by contemporary artists whose work has engaged with the status and idea of 'the artist' in modern culture. It follows on from a symposium on Myths of the Other taking place the previous day. Speakers include, Grayson Perry, Gill Perry, Christine Riding, Emma Barker, Belinda Thomson, Ming Wong and Alastair Wright. In collaboration with The Open University Tate Modern Starr Auditorium £15 (£12 concessions), booking recommended Joint ticket available with Myths of the Other £25 (£20 concessions). Please call 020 7887 8888 to book this. For tickets book online or call 020 7887 8888.
