Following the threads of past movements such as Creative Salvage, which similarly repurpose and reuse discarded or defunct materials, this talk focuses on the character of accumulation and appropriation in contemporary artistic practices. Beyond examining each individual practice, the discussion will explain working processes, consider the wealth of collections – from the film archive to the scrap heap – and explore the resulting experiential effect on the viewer.
Chaired by Iwona Blazwick, Director of the Whitechapel Gallery, speakers include artists Eloise Hawser and Haroon Mirza, and curator Isobel Harbison.
Unfortunately, Bonnie Camplin is no longer able to take part in this event as previously advertised.
