This was an interesting talk about an artist I've long admired, but knew nothing about. The talk was logically organized and nicely illustrated with examples of his work, particularly the architecture.
There was a lot of information about the context of CRM's work... the art scene at the time in Glasgow and elsewhere (like Vienna), his predecessors and contemporaries, and his immediate circle of artists.
It's refreshing to see the range of topics, and provides an outlet I value during these travel-free times
I would recommend Context Conversations because I believe scholarship transcends classrooms and institutional settings.
We had a sound problem with Alex!
I have done walking tours with Context from 2001 in Rome (when you were Scala Reale) through 2020 in Capetown. I have often recommended Context to friends. My previous experiences have ranged from good to thrilling. Unfortunately, this Zoom experience was disappointing. Besides technology problems, the speaker was too academic and dry and the slides weren’t great. I found some on Wikipedia while he was speaking and they were the same photos but better quality.
