High on Hope was conceived as a memorial exhibition for the artist Gerard Hemsworth (1945 – 2021). It brings together a selection of Hemsworth’s canvases and work by eight other artists whom he taught, on the part-time Master’s programme at Goldsmith’s College in South London, in the late 1980s and early 1990s.
The exhibition, curated by artist Rebecca Scott, focuses on artists whose work she sees as resonating with Hemsworth’s own engagement in a type of ‘post-conceptual figurative or representational painting’.
Artists include Mark Fairnington, Roy Holt, Gerard Hemsworth, Rebecca Scott, Bob & Roberta Smith, Jessica Voorsanger, Mark Wallinger and Suzy Willey.
This publication features an essay by Julien Delegrange and original texts by Daniel Sturgis and Dr Mo Throp.
Published on the occasion of the exhibition, High on Hope, at Cross Lane Projects, Kendal (23 July – 24 September, 2022).
