MY PARTY: Works by Michael Lindsay-Hogg
October 8, 2014 to January 7, 2015
Presented by The DEN
Having drawn all his life, Lindsay-Hogg has begun showing his artwork in the public contemporary art realm. His enigmatic oil paintings and drawings on canvas, board, and paper traverse the lines between naïve art, raw psychological expressionism and self-taught representational art, all with an underlying sense of sly humor.
A dynamic creative force in the US and Europe throughout the decades, Lindsay-Hogg's recent memoir Luck and Circumstance: A Coming of Age in Hollywood, New York, and Points Beyond, talks of being a pioneer in music videos, having directed videos for The Rolling Stones for fifteen years (including the iconic Rolling Stones Rock and Roll Circus), The Who and The Beatles. He directed The Beatles final public performance and film, Let It Be, as well as the award-winning Graceland with Paul Simon, shot in Zimbabwe.
On stage, Lindsay-Hogg has directed and won accolades for many original productions, including Agnes of God on Broadway, The Normal Heart at New York's Public Theatre, and a Tony Nomination for Best Director for Whose Life Is It Anyway? Lindsay-Hoggʼs film and television credits include Brideshead Revisited, Waiting for Godot, The Object of Beauty, Anton Chekov's The Seagull, and Tom Stoppardʼs Professional Foul and Guy. He was awarded Best Director by BAFTA, Best Picture and Best Director at the Cairo Int’l Film Festival, and Best TV Drama on the prestigious British arts program The South Bank Show.
