Julia Bryan-Wilson UTSATT: Plattform - Textiles and Tensility   Upstairs  Foredrag

PLEASE NOTE: Unfortunately this event has been postponed.

New date coming soon, in the meantime we recommend you to watch "Fray: Art and Textile Politics" A conversation with Julia Bryan-Wilson and Lynne Cooke

Drawing on her award-winning book FRAY, Julia Bryan-Wilson discusses the intertwining of so-called amateur textile handicraft, the gendering of textile fabrication, and fiber art. She elaborates on the concept of textile's political "tensility" -- the capacity of a material to be stretched -- as she examines examples that include the work of Elisabeth Haarr.

Julia Bryan-Wilson is Professor of Art History at the University of California, Berkeley and the Director of the UC Berkeley Arts Research Center. Her research interests include theories of artistic labor, performance and dance, craft histories, visual culture of the nuclear age, and collaborative practices. Her most recent book Fray: Art and Textile Politics (2017) was a New York Times best art book of the year and winner of the Frank Jewett Mather Award, the Robert Motherwell Book Award, and the ASAP Book Prize. Bryan-Wilson is also an adjunct curator at the Museu de Arte de São Paulo.

Plattform is Bergen Kunsthall’s series of lectures and debates with artists and prominent thinkers. This season we present talks and conversations in connection with Elisabeth Haarr’s Festival Exhibition and Hana Miletić’s exhibition in gallery V. Plattform events are live-streamed on our website, Facebook and Vimeo.
Plattform is supported by Fritt Ord
