Ramesh Mario Nithiyendran & Tim Silver In conversation with Professor Paul Gladston
- When 16 Nov - 16 Nov 2019
799 Elizabeth St, Zetland NSW 2017, Australia Sullivan+Strumpf Sydney
3pm to 4pm
To mark the end of their solo exhibitions at Sullivan+Strumpf Sydney, Sydney artists Ramesh Mario Nithiyendran and Tim Silver will speak with Professor Paul Gladston of the University of NSW.
Catch the last day of Nithiyendran’s ‘False Gods’ and Silver’s ‘The Distance Between Us’ at Sullivan+Strumpf and hear the artists discuss their practice.
The conversation will explore the artists’ distinctive techniques and aesthetics and how their work is primed to engender a multiplicity of meanings.
Silver uses various materials and forms of casting to produce physically and interpretatively entropic works that open up shifting perspectives on human relations past and present.
Nithiyendran’s complex assemblages activate an array of intersecting and sometimes dissonant significances countering fixed conceptions/performances of identity, including categorical distinctions between humanity and nature.
In doing so, both artists seek to challenge reassuring ideas of how art should be made, shown and received.
Paul Gladston is the inaugural Judith Neilson Professor of Contemporary Art. His new book, Contemporary Chinese Art, Aesthetic Modernity and Zhang Peili: Towards a Critical Contemporaneity, is published by Bloomsbury.
‘False Gods’ and ‘The Distance Between Us’ are on view at Sullivan+Strumpf Sydney until 16 November 2019. Entry is free.
