GUGGENHEIM ABU DHABI: TALKING ART SERIES
Talking Art Series is a platform for discussion and debate for the future museums of the Saadiyat Cultural District. It is a forum for the sharing of ideas and for dialogue with the wider public. The Talking Art Series is a dynamic programme- the format, content, presentation and audience will evolve and be different each time. What will remain constant is the continual dialogue between the museums and the public.
The 2013 Guggenheim Abu Dhabi: Talking Art Series will feature public panels, screenings and workshops by leading contemporary artists whose works are in the permanent collection of Guggenheim Abu Dhabi. Several of the curatorial narratives helping structure the Guggenheim Abu Dhabi’s collection will be explored, including Popular Culture and the Mediated Image; System, Process, Concept; and History, Memory, Narrative.
The roster of participating artists will represent various generations and nationalities. This approach reflects the fundamentally transnational perspective on art history being advanced by the Guggenheim Abu Dhabi, which acknowledges the dynamics of art making across geographies and across different moments in time.
Guggenheim Abu Dhabi: Talking Art Series commences in May with a group of five international artists whose work has already been acquired for the collection: El Anatsui, Feng Mengbo, Youssef Nabil, James Rosenquist and Adel El-Siwi. The November programme will take place during the days of Abu Dhabi Art and will feature artists: Angela Bulloch, Heinz Mack, Marwan, Hassan Sharif, Monika Sosnowska, Jacques Villeglé, and Yang Fudong.
