TALK SERIES DOUGLAS GORDON
TALK Series: Douglas Gordon
MONDAY 26 SEPTEMBER 8 p.m. at Hafnarhús
A guest lecturer at the Iceland Academy of the Arts, artist Douglas Gordon will be the first speaker in this winter‘s TALK Series. It is a great honor to welcome this intriguing artist to talk about his current work.
Douglas Gordon is known internationally since receiving the Turner Prize in 1996 and representing UK at the Venice Biennial a year later. His subjects often vary around matters relating to time and memory. Referencing cultural history and collective memory, he creates work in different mediums, developing in particular elaborate video installations.
The TALK Series is a collaborative project between the Icelandic Art Center, Iceland Academy of the Arts and the Reykjavík Art Museum. Since the year 2012 artists, thinkers and curators have been invited to Iceland to teach, talk and get to know the local art scene.
The presentation is in English and free for all.
