Artist and former participant Ryan Gander (1976, UK) is internationally known for his extensive use of an ever-expanding range of media. His work varies from installation and sculpture to photographs, performative lectures and writings. In his works, Gander examines both the production of art and the way we perceive it, his humour preventing this from being merely institutional critique. You are most welcome to join Gander’s lecture on Tuesday 9 April at 18:00.

Guggenheim Museum (NYC, US); The Happy Prince, Public Art Fund (Doris C. Freedman Plaza, Central Park, NYC, US) and Manifesta 8 (Murica, SP).
