Max Clendinning: Interior Eulogies
Panel discussion with Simon Andrews, Ben Kelly and Bethan Laura Wood, moderated by Libby Sellers
Royal Institute of British Architects, 66 Portland Place W1
15 September 2022
To coincide with the exhibition Max Clendinning: Interior Eulogies, at Sadie Coles HQ, London, Simon Andrews the exhibition curator and Sadie Coles HQ host a panel discussion on Clendinning's work, its legacy and influence on contemporary design. Max Clendinning (1924-2020) was an architect, interior and furniture designer, sculptor, artist and one of the most enigmatic and intuitive creators of the British Post-war Modern movement. Together with his lifelong partner and collaborator, the Slade-trained painter and theatre set designer Ralph Adron (b. 1937), Clendinning delivered some of the most sumptuous and wildly exotic domestic interiors of the era. Centred around seminal works ranging from the 1960s to the late 1970s, the exhibition and panel discussion give insight into their daring and profound legacy.
