MOSTYN, Wales UK is pleased to present two new exhibitions “In Conversation” by Los Angeles based Derek Boshier and Cardiff based S Mark Gubb.

The gallery’s ongoing “In Conversation” series brings together two solo exhibitions and presents the dialogue, collaboration or similarity in exploring themes that can occur between artists. This iteration, which stems from a chance introduction through a mutual friend between Derek Boshier and S Mark Gubb, takes the series a step further with Gubb co-curating the exhibition by Boshier in collaboration with MOSTYN Director, Alfredo Cramerotti.

Derek Boshier, who first came to prominence as part of the British Pop Art movement in the early 1960s, is also known for his work with cultural icons such as The Clash and David Bowie.

The exhibition includes a range of drawings, paintings, prints and videos, along with lesser-known photographic and sculptural works, and ephemera from the artist’s personal collection. Through this broad collection of works and artefacts, the exhibition reveals how Boshier’s creativity steps beyond the studio or gallery space. Containing works from the last four decades of the artist’s career, presented here is a never before seen portrait of an artist whose own work he has described as “art that’s political, not political art.”

The exhibition also includes works and archive photographs made in the 1970s when Boshier lived in the Welsh village of Llangadfan.

To accompany the season a combined catalogue, funded by the University of Worcester, will be produced containing a new essay by Jonathan Griffin.

Derek Boshier’s exhibition is thanks to generous support of Colwinston Charitable Trust and the assistance of Gazelli Art House, London.
