Featured Event
‘Five Artists: Sites Encountered’ exhibition's public event: In Conversation with Lee Bul
South Korean contemporary artist Lee Bul appeared on the art scene in the late 1980s as a performance artist, turned her attention to sculptures by the mid-1990s. Lee Bul’s idea of site and place is pertinent to her upbringing under the military dictatorship in the post-Korean war era marked by political turmoil and industrial development. Her recent sculptural works often draw inspiration from the futuristic vision of nineteenth-and twentieth-century utopian thinkers and architects, offer imaginative views on the development of site and place. Join us on 3 October for ‘In Conversation with Lee Bul’, in which following an introduction by exhibition curator Pauline J. Yao, Lee Bul and architectural historian Cole Roskam discuss ideas of utopia and speculative architecture exemplified in the artist’s maquettes.
