Artist in Conversation: Jake and Dinos Chapman

Independent charity The Art Fund, in partnership with the National Portrait Gallery, present Jake and Dinos Chapman in conversation. Famous for their subversive projects exploring politics, religion and morality, Jake and Dinos Chapman will discuss their work with Tim Marlow.

Their projects include The Chapman Family Collection (2002) a work highlighting issues of imperialism and globalisation.  Acquired for the nation with help from The Art Fund and displayed at Tate Britain’s 2009 Classified exhibition, it features pseudo African artefacts which on closer inspection are covered in McDonald’s logos.

In 2008, the artists presented an exhibition at White Cube Mason’s Yard entitled If Hitler Had Been a Hippy How Happy Would We Be, which featured a critically acclaimed re-working of their remorseless, intricate and utterly compelling vision of Hell alongside 13 watercolours by Adolf Hitler which the artists had acquired, amended and subverted.

Interviewed by Tim Marlow, art historian, broadcaster and Director of Exhibitions at White Cube.
