The artwork vs. the gallery space
The lecture will investigate the role of the gallery space/architecture in influencing the production, reception and reading of an artwork. Using a variety of scenarios from the artists practice, she will examine situations where artworks have been produced in direct response to the gallery architecture alongside examples of artworks which are re-situated and re-imagined in a variety of exhibition making strategies.
