Lothar Götz in Hereford

From June 2022 to April 2023 German artist Lothar Götz will transform the area around No. 1 Station Approach next to Hereford Railway Station. Götz will make two monumental and vibrant geometric artworks that will be displayed on each end of Hereford College of Art (HCA) and NMiTE’s new student accommodation. A number of dazzling flags designed by the artist will also be sited by the building. The artworks will mark the start of a new cultural gateway to Hereford, welcoming visitors and enriching residents’ experience of the city. 

UK-based Götz’s intervention will be the first of four new bold commissions of public artwork at the site over four years. The No. 1 Station Approach installation is one of fourteen projects that have been made possible in Hereford thanks to a successful £22.4million funding bid to the Stronger Towns Fund.  

An associated engagement programme will reach out to residents, visitors, students, artists as well as the wider community to stimulate debate and showcase Hereford as a cultural destination.  

Götz’s work, typically large-scale paintings, drawings and installations that respond to existing structures have included commissions for South Bank Centre, London (2014); Leeds Art Gallery (2017) and most recently the Towner Art Gallery in Eastbourne (2019) to much acclaim.

On Wednesday 15 June hear from Götz about his process, from sketch to realisation with the opportunity to ask questions. Then join us at No. 1 Station Approach to see the final artworks.
