Phyllida Barlow (1944-2023)

We were very sorry to hear the sad news about Phyllida Barlow.
As well as being a brilliant artist, Phyllida was a much loved part of the Slade community, having been a student (1963 - 1966) and a tutor until 2009. She was a generous friend and colleague, and a great supporter of the Slade. She will be sadly missed. Our thoughts and condolences to her family and friends.
