Waplington is an internationally renowned artist. He rose to prominence with his series Living Room that is his reaction to "the grainy, downtrodden, black-and-white interpretation of working-class life."

For the last five years Nick Waplington has been living and working in the West Bank, the land where the Palestinians hope to create their future state. His work there deals primarily with the Jewish settlers and how they have affected the geopolitical balance of the region.

In this lecture, Waplington will present three bodies of work:

The Patriarch's Wardrobe
Long way Back to Nowhere

He has18 monographs, including his new book Settlement (forthcoming from Mack Books 2014).

Waplington’s work is held in the collections of The Guggenheim Art Gallery, The Museum of Modern Art, The Royal Danish Photographic Museum, the Victoria and Albert Museum, London, and many other prestigious institutions.

There are approximately 20,000 monthly visitors to Waplington’s website.
