Periphery – A Talk About the Art Work of Ian Rawlinson

Wednesday November 24, 2021

As an artist Ian Rawlinson’s work has taken him around the UK, the world and back to his hometown of Cambridge. His recent artwork and film-making have seen him re-engage with his past, shedding new light on transitional places that remained hidden in his psyche for many years. He will talk about the process of making this work and why unearthing places and memories from his childhood have formed a powerful confluence with his present day experiences of working in Cambridge, drawing him back to the city he left as a teenager.

Born in Cambridge, Ian Rawlinson grew up in the city during the 1960s and 1970s. He studied art at Cambridge College of Art & Technology (now Anglia Ruskin University) and left Cambridge in 1982 to further his studies at Winchester School of Art and the Royal College of Art. Since 1985 he has lived and worked in London. He has also travelled and worked in Europe, the USA and Mexico. To date his work has been shown in many group and solo exhibitions, both in the UK and internationally and is held in public and private collections.

This talk is part of the Museum’s ‘Cambridge Talks’ series. All proceeds from this event will go towards supporting the Museum of Cambridge.   From 7.00 pm to 8.15 pm.
