The Studio of Giles Round

Friday 12 March–Sunday 25 April

The Sackler Centre for Arts Education

For the duration of the Richard Hamilton: Modern Moral Matters exhibition (3 March – 25 April 2010) London-based artist Giles Round brought together new and previous works to create a studio at the Serpentine Gallery where he was in residence.

The Studio of Giles Round  was a project developed from the artist’s practice and interests and for the duration was a space not only for the production of new work but also for research, discussion and social interaction.

Round’s work utilises the formal language of modernist and minimalist art and design and explores the interaction of structure and ornament that references the homemaking of such pioneers of art and architecture as Dieter Rams, Donald Judd and Ernö Goldfinger. In The Studio of Giles Round he will explore conserving and recreating the 20th century, forgotten design and design processes, geometric pattern and typography through a series of workshops and events.
