Drawing Room is pleased to announce a screening of Patrick Goddard’s film Looking for the Ocean Estate, followed by the artist in conversation with Authentocrats author Joe Kennedy
Join Drawing Room for a screening of artist Patrick Goddard's 2016 film Looking for the Ocean Estate. Patrick Goddard's work includes video, installation, publications, drawing and performance and often uses black comedy and cynicism to question ideas of authenticity. Goddard considers the artist’s fetishisation of urban detritus and the duplicity of celebrating whilst critiquing urban decline.
Following the screening, we will see Patrick Goddard in conversation with Joe Kennedy, author of the book Authentocrats: Culture, Politics and the New Seriousness, published June 2018.
Tickets for this event cover both film screening and conversation, however, attendance of the screening is not obligatory.
This event is an accompaniment to Patrick Goddard's tenure as the current Annotations artist at Drawing Room. His commissioned work for this project will be on view at Drawing Room's Outset Study during the event.

Completing an MFA at Goldsmiths University in 2011, he is currently studying for a doctorate at Ruskin School of Art, University of Oxford, in Fine Art practice.
