Birmingham Big Art Foundation in partnership with Birmingham City University invite you to a series of keynote lectures by the five shortlisted artists in the lead up to the selection of the winning commission.
Over the past two decades, Susan Philipsz’s practice has been concerned with sound as a form of sculpture. Philipsz will discuss the relationship between sound and space and the politics of silence in relation to her proposal ‘Station Clock’ for the Birmingham Big Art Project as well as showing previous projects in the public realm including her major commissions for dOCUMENTA 13, Kassel in 2012, Artangel, London, in 2010 and Münster Sculpture Project, Münster in 2007.
This is the second in a series of Big Art Talks by the five shortlisted artists in the lead up to the selection of the winning commission. The Big Art Talks are hosted by Birmingham Big Art Foundation in partnership with Birmingham City University and Eastside Projects.
Susan Philipsz, was born in 1965 in Glasgow and lives and works in Berlin. Since the mid-1990s her sound installations have been exhibited at many prestigious institutions around the world including Kunsthaus Bregenz, Austria (2016); Tate Britain, Duveen Galleries, London (2015); Hamburger Bahnhof, Berlin (2014); The Carnegie Museum of Art, Pittsburgh (2013); Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago (2011); Museum Ludwig in Cologne, Germany (2009) among others. Philipsz was the recipient of the 2010 Turner Prize and in 2012 she debuted a major work at dOCUMENTA 13.
We are calling on you, the publics of Birmingham, to join in the conversation. What will make a difference to our city, what reflects Birmingham as an exciting and challenging environment for people to live and work in, which do you feel a connection to, and why?
