Artist Lecture Series: Keren Cytter

Artist Reception: 6:30pm - 7:30pm
Lecture and interview: 7:30pm - 8:30pm Feb 4, 2010

Artists Talk On Art is delighted to host provocative Israeli artist Keren Cytter tonight as part of our Artist Lecture Series. Keren's artistic practice confronts and challenges representations of social realities, creating a veritable field of mutated plurality, meaning, signification and pleasure.

'Keren Cytter's videos have a distinctly literary flavour. Although her medium is tape and she makes countless references to cinematic and televised forms, her scripts often involve long soliloquies and multiple voice-overs that would seem more comfortable unravelling over the pages of a novel. The subject matter of her work is the stuff of relationships loss, loving, longing, friendship, betrayal much of it culled from her own or her friends lives.' - frieze.com

Keren Cytter has had solo exhibitions at CCA Center for Contemporary Art, Kitakyushu (2009), Witte de With, Rotterdam (2008), and MUMOK, Vienna (2007).

Her work was included in the New Museum's landmark exhibition The Generational: Younger Than Jesus, and the 53rd Venice Biennale curated by Daniel Birnbaum.
