In 2013, Clarrie Wallis curated the first significant institutional exhibition of Rose Wylie in Britain at Tate, which preceded worldwide solo presentations. The exhibition was followed by Wallis’ publication of the painter’s first monograph in 2018, outlining some of the key aspects of her prolific oeuvre. In conjunction with the exhibition picky people notice…, in S.M.A.K., Wallis will share her insights on Wylie’s remarkable career in relation to the paintings and drawings on display.
