In this panel discussion chaired by Professor Michael Archer, artists Sir Michael Craig Martin CBE RA, Alice Anderson and Professor Dawn Ades CBE FBA explore how artists transform our perception of everyday and familiar objects. While diverse in their practice, Henri Matisse, Jasper Johns, Salvador Dalí and Marcel Duchamp all carefully considered the representation of objects in their work. Whether artists use objects as the subject of a still-life or directly incorporate them into the work itself, the hand of the artist encourages us to reconsider everyday objects as though we are seeing them for the first time. As the viewer we are inspired to look beyond function and utility to read into the social, cultural and political significance of these inanimate objects. In this discussion, artists Sir Michael Craig Martin CBE RA, Alice Anderson and art historian Professor Dawn Ades CBE FBA examine why artists continue to explore the representation of objects, at a time where virtual reality and technological advances pose a challenge to the very presence of objects in our material world.
