Darren Coffield - Print Retrospective

6 - 20 September 2013

We are delighted to announce a retrospective of works in print from 1999 to 2006 by controversial British artist Darren Coffield in association with The National Print Gallery.The artist is credited for two highly successful, coinciding shows in the UK this Summer. 'Ashes and Diamonds', a tribute to the men and women of the 1980s miner's strike, is currently running at The Outsiders gallery in Newcastle and closes on the 31st August. Also closing on the same date at Paul Stolper Gallery London and curated by Darren Coffield is 'Factual Nonsense - The Art and Death of Joshua Compston'. According to GQ magazine "When art historians look back on the last decade of the 20th century, Joshua Compston's name will be foremost". Works in print from both of these highly recommended exhibitions will feature in Coffield's upcoming retrospective print show along with signed copies of Coffiled's recently published book 'Factual Nonsense - The Art and Death of Joshua Compston', a biography of his friend Compston and alternative portrait of the 1990s art scene in East London.
