Posted on Artist Liam Gillick visiting the “Situation of the Arts,” Spring 2017
Artist Liam Gillick will discuss his new book, Industry and Intelligence: Contemporary Art Since 1820, in which he examines “hidden turning points” in the relationship between society, technology and the individual. These turning points, Gillick proposes, set the conditions for the emergence of the current figure of the artist and what we now think of as art, which the term contemporary no longer encompasses.
Liam Gillick has been a nominee for the Turner Prize and the Vincent Award. His work has been shown in exhibitions worldwide.
