DRAF Broadcasts: On Screen Special
Charles Avery Selects: Erik van Lieshout, Beer, 2019
1 – 14 October 2020
On Screen Specials sees invited artists featured in the David Roberts Collection select a moving image work from a fellow artist, friend or peer that they have been inspired by, as well as give a short introduction to the piece.
Charles Avery chose this piece saying that "It’s extremely relevant, it's substantial, it pays tribute to the essential close production and relationship with his wife Suzanne, whilst bearing all the hallmarks of vintage Erik: humour, vulnerability, honesty, dishonesty, cheek, accessibility."

ES Magazine, 18.09.20
Wolfgang Tillmans has created the latest cover artwork for the first Evening Standard Magazine since lockdown. This is editor Laura Weir's last cover commission.
'My cover is a text and image collage that shows stars in the sky above the clouds, caught from a plane on my last long haul flight before the pandemic. A high sensitivity camera sensor at the limits of its capacity to record information in full darkness, resulting in a myriad of colours after developing the photograph.
The writing reflects the hesitation and the pulling and pushing, the conflicting directions that are within me. A desire to make sense of the urgency of the moment. The hope for us to use it to move society, our community, in a better direction.'

Studio K.O.S. Post-Workshop Dialogue
Thursday 24 September 2020
Studio K.O.S. presented a public conversation as part of Art Resources Transfer’s year long celebration of the D.U.C. Honoree, in partnership with the Walker Art Center. The conversation addressed the artist collective’s collaborative approach to art-making, spanning their 30+ year practice, and reflected on experiences of their recent workshops, discussing Ralph Ellison’s text Invisible Man and the dualities of reading, making and the interchange between art and social justice.
This free event took place online via Zoom.
