  Please join us for the first in the series of 'In Conversations' at Pippy Houldsworth Gallery. Clem Crosby will discuss his solo exhibition Continuum with renowned art writer and TV presenter Matthew Collings. The discussion will unpick Crosby's process, influences and his unique relationship to painting.

Crosby's large-scale commission for The Young Vic Theatre in London, 180 Monochrome Paintings, was installed on the exterior of the theatre in 2006 as part of a major architectural renovation, which received the 2007 RIBA award. Recent exhibitions include Laure Genillard Gallery, London; Beacon Art Project, Calke Abbey, Derbyshire, with Jimmie Durham, Karla Black and Roger Hiorns; and the Tate Britain Drawing Symposium/Exhibition. Crosby's work was reviewed in ArtForum, September 2011 by Barry Schwabsky.

Matthew Collings is an artist (working in collaboration with Emma Biggs) and art writer. He has written many books on art including Blimey! and This Is Modern Art. He has also written and presented many popular TV series, including This Is Modern Art, which won a Bafta among other awards. His next exhibition of paintings with Emma Biggs, entitled The Whole Earth, is at Vigo, in Bond Street, London, opening January 11 2012.
