Billy Childish in Conversation with Matthew Higgs


Artist Billy Childish joined Matthew Higgs, Director and Chief Curator of White Columns, for a conversation about his multi-disciplinary practice and creative process in celebration of Childish’s residency at Lehmann Maupin’s new space in London. Higgs notably curated Childish’s first solo exhibition with Lehmann Maupin I Am the Billy Childish in 2011. Coinciding with Frieze Week in London, the conversation explored Childish’s decades-long career as he approached a new series of paintings inspired by a book of intimate autobiographical photographs—billy childish, photography 1974–2020 that was released in conjunction with the residency.
