  • Based on a true story: Geoff Lowe 1972–92 and A Constructed World 1993–2012

    A Vizard Foundation Contemporary Artist Project

    Thursday 15 Nov 2012 to Sunday 10 Mar 2013
    Curator: Bala Starr


    Based on a true story traces the relationship between the concepts and methods that informed the early paintings of influential multidisciplinary artist Geoff Lowe, and those associated with his collaborative practice as part of A Constructed World, founded with Jacqueline Riva in 1993. Lowe and Riva are currently based in Paris.

    The exhibition will bring together for the first time paintings produced by Lowe from the early 1970s to the late 1990s, along with work in a variety of media by A Constructed World from the early 1990s to the present. The second in the series of Vizard Foundation Contemporary Art Projects, this major exhibition will include a new commissioned work supported by a direct grant to the artists from the Vizard Foundation.
