Meeting Architecture: Richard Deacon & Eric Parry
16 December 2014 | 7pm
Kensington, Lecture Theatre 1
The RCA will once again host Meeting Architecture, a series of lectures organised by the British School at Rome. The 2014/15 talks will continue to analyse the relationship and cross-over between architecture and some of the other creative processes in a series of talks by leading figures from architecture, art and film.
In the first talk of the series architect Eric Parry and artist Richard Deacon will look at the links between architecture and art, historically two of the most closely entwined disciplines. Successful collaborations between the two disciplines are rare though and in most cases artists are invited to decorate architects’ buildings. To quote Deacon: ‘I have worked with a lot of architects and I have a pretty healthy suspicion of them’. However, he refers to his work with the British architect Eric Parry as being completely different. The two have collaborated for many years and this event will provide a rare opportunity to hear them discuss the nature of their collaborations as well as present for the first time an analysis of some of their work together.
