Sam Dargan in conversation with Reece Jones

Please join us on Monday 27 November, when Sam Dargan will discuss his current exhibition with artist Reece Jones.

Drinks from 6.30pm, conversation from 7pm.

Reece Jones ( b. 1976, Botswana) is an artist, he lives and works in London and studied at the Royal Academy Schools. Jones’ work explores notions of truth, representation and actuality by composing invented drawings which follow particular processes of erasure and re-definition. His sources and references include cinema, land art, the American Sublime and ‘evidence’ of improbable beasts. 

Jones wrote the interview for Jonathan Wateridge’s monograph Mitteland published by AVA and the essay The Half Life of Messages for Lisa Wilken’s exhibition catalogue published by Paper in Manchester. He recently curated The Hair of the Dog at Block 336, Brixton and Terminalia at Charlie Smith London and was one of the founding members of Rockwell, a project space in Hackney from 2002-2007. Jones is a tutor in Fine Art at City & Guilds of London Art School and has led gallery conversations with artists such as Lucy Williams at Timothy Taylor, Gavin Nolan at Charlie Smith and Jonathan Wateridge at Pace.
