Springvossen 17 juni | Alan Charlton

15:00 – 16:00

Guest: Alan Charlton, artist.

Robert van Altena interviews Alan Charlton on the occasion of his show ‘Painted – Unpainted‘ at Galerie Slewe (up until 22 june).




 “The first exhibition I ever made was this one in art school in 1969. You know, as a young person you want to declare your intentions, so before people could enter the room I pinned a note on the door and it was a quotation from Giacometti. The quotation, very approximately was something like: ‘To see something different in the same face is greater than any journey around the world’. And that I think is what I’m trying to do.”
