Featured Program: Conversation with Liam Gillick, 6 pm

Experience artist Liam Gillick, List Assistant Curator Alise Upitis, and Walker Art Center Curator and exhibition organizer Bartholomew Ryan in conversation about the show. 

Intimately invested in the legacy of modernism, Liam Gillick (b.1964) makes sculptures, text-based works, and publications that owe much to a working through of the failure of its Utopian promise to design a more egalitarian society. The exhibition will present a series of projects from the last 20 years of the artist’s production—from graphic vinyl wall texts, to giant Bloody Mary’s, to glitter carpets. What aligns the work is a concern for organization, how communities exist and are transformed in an era of ever increasing privatization.
