FORMAT Issue 5
Career Format 3: Cecile B Evans & Gianluigi Ricuperati
Date: Friday 17 July 2015
Venue: New Soft Room
FORMAT is a ‘live magazine’ looking at the shapes that discourse and knowledge takes.
Issue 5 believes that seen from a particular vantage point, careers are design projects or artworks. They have shape, narrativity, poetic predestination and also serendipitous failure built into their wiring. Guests are asked to present Career Formats that have mattered to them in shaping what they do, in the worlds of art, architecture, curating, graphic design, literature, performance, popular culture and more.
Cecile B Evans and Gianluigi Ricuperati will present the Career Formats of artist Elaine Sturtevant, filmmaker Werner Herzog, architect/designer Hans Hollein and novelist/playwright/journalist Stefan Zweig.
Cécile B. Evans is an artist who has exhibited internationally and is the recipient of awards such as Frieze’s Emdash Award and the Palais de Tokyo’s PYA Prize. She is the creator of AGNES, the Serpentine Galleries’ first digital commission and is currently working on a sequel to her recent film Hyperlinks or It Didn’t Happen.
Gianluigi Ricuperati is a writer, curator and director of Domus Academy, Milan. Gianluigi is author of five books, a contributor to Il Sole 24 Ore, La Repubblica, 032c, Dazed and Confused and other publications. He is also founder of the cross-disciplinary research group Institute for Production of Wonder.
All lectures are open to members of the public, staff and students unless otherwise stated.
