Art Talks © The Lightbox

The original definition of Social Realism in art covered clearly identifiable figurative paintings which highlighted political or social issues.  In this talk Melanie will look at how Modern and Contemporary artists have continued to examine the social issues of their time through a broad range of mediums including painting, photography and installation.  

Melanie will examine work by a variety of artists and photographers including Dorothea Lange, José Clemente Orozco, Paula Rego, Tracey Emin, Gillian Wearing and Lubaina Himid.
