Simon Starling Lecture

WHEN : 21st July, 1:00pm
WHERE : Gallery of Modern Art, Stanley Place, South Bank.

English artist Simon Starling, who won the prestigious Turner Prize in 2005, is celebrated for his erudite projects. His works explore the legacies of modernism and globalisation by addressing peculiar histories surrounding specific objects and sites of art, design, and science. While they mine real histories, there is always something unexpected, excessive, witty, perverse, serendipitous, convoluted, or crafty about them.

Starling is visiting Australia for the opening of his exhibition In Speculum at Melbourne’s Monash University Museum of Art (18 July–21 September 2013).
