Platform: Stephen Prina

Stephen Prinas artist talk at Bergen Kunsthall – Landmark in connection with the opening of his exhibition (Feb 27. – Apr. 3. 2009, Bergen Kunsthall).

The American artist Stephen Prina is one of the most important representatives of post¬conceptual strategies in contemporary art. Prina has used classic conceptual art, and at the same time its historical predecessor, modernism, as the point of departure for his own artistic output.

Stephen Prina (b. 1954) lives and works in Los Angeles, California and Cambridge, Massachusetts, where he is a professor at Harvard University. Prina has had solo exhi¬bi¬tions at among other venues Artpace, San Antonio; DAAD Galerie, Berlin; Los Angeles Municipal Gallery; Museé d’art Moderne et Contemporain, Geneva; P.S.1 Museum, New York; and The Power Plant, Toronto. He has also participated in a succession of group exhibitions, for example at Documenta IX and the Venice Biennale (1990).
