Artangel Co-Director James Lingwood: Artists and Places

Tuesday 10 December 2019, 6.00pm - 7.00pm


Platform Gallery, Parnell Train Station
23 Cheshire St, Parnell

James Lingwood, Co-Director of ARTANGEL, will survey a range of projects commissioned by Artangel involving a relationship between an artist and a specific site or situation.

Several of these projects were made in London, where Artangel is based, including Steve McQueen's Year 3, made with over 1500 primary schools in London, and Andrea Luka Zimmerman and Adrian Jackson's feature-length film Here for Life, Francis Alys's Seven Walks and Susan Philipsz's Surround Me. The talk will also survey a site-specific project in Reading Prison including 22 artists and writers, and long-term projects by Roni Horn in Iceland and Mike Kelley in Detroit.

Based in London and led by James Lingwood and Michael Morris, notable Artangel projects include House by Rachel Whiteread (1993), Break Down by Michael Landy (2001), The Battle of Orgreave by Jeremy Deller (2001), Seizure by Roger Hiorns (20082010), Inside: Artists and Writers in Reading Prison (2016), An Occupation of Loss by Taryn Simon (2018) and this autumn, Year 3 by Steve McQueen across London and at Tate Britain.
