The Alan Cristea Gallery, London
Never before seen private notebooks, dating from 1970 to the present day, by British artist Joe Tilson RA will go on display, alongside related works.
An original protagonist of the British Pop Art movement, and a contemporary of Frank Auerbach, Leon Kosoff, he also formed close attachments to Peter Blake, Allen Jones and Patrick Caulfield. These personal notebooks full of his notes, lists, poetry, studies, drawings, photographs and his insights into art, literature and cultural history give unprecedented insight into Tilson’s working methods and the philosophy that governs his work and life.
