RAGNAR KJARTANSSON

May 22, 2007 from 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
CCS Seminar Room

Ragnar Kjartansson, an emerging artist from Iceland, will be introduced in conversation with the curator, Markús Thór Andrésson,in conjunction with his thesis exhibition Repeat Performances: Roni Horn and Ragnar Kjartansson.

There will be a special focus on how Kjartansson takes on local elements in his site specific and commissioned work, FOLKSONG. Kjartansson will relate the work to his previous practice as a performance artist and musician, showing images and videos of earlier works. His practice of crossing over the fields of music, art and theater will also be a topic of discussion.
