Francis Bacon here and now
A forum introducing the extraordinary work of Francis Bacon
What makes Francis Bacon’s paintings so compelling? And why is the time ripe for a retrospective of his work in Australia? Join ABC Classic FM’s Emma Ayres as she speaks with a line-up of Bacon experts about his extraordinary work, his ramshackle London studio (now preserved in Dublin City Gallery The Hugh Lane) and his connection to Australian artists, from Roy de Maistre to Brett Whiteley.
The panelists are exhibition curator Anthony Bond (assistant director, curatorial, Art Gallery of NSW), Dr Margarita Cappock (head of collections, Dublin City Gallery, The Hugh Lane), Dr Rebecca Daniels and Martin Harrison (respectively, researcher and editor of the Francis Bacon catalogue raisonné).
