Film Viewing and Discussion with Derek Boshier

  • Vita Art Center 28 West Main Street Ventura United States (map)


Join us for a special event with artist and filmmaker Derek Boshier. The screening program will include Boshier's award winning short film. "An Englishman in L.A., Mr. Boshier” . The second screening is from the BBC4 series by Zara Hayes, “What Do Artists Do All Day”  it offers intimate, observational portraits of leading artists, revealing unique insights into their working lives and creative process. The episode follows a day at the artist's studio as he works on a new painting and reflects on his life and career.

Boshier burst onto the British art scene in the sixties as one of the young artists who pioneered the British pop art movement. He studied at the Royal College of Art and starred in Pop Goes the Easel, Ken Russell's seminal BBC film about the pop art scene. Now in his eighties and living and working in LA, Derek remains as energetic and prolific as ever.
