M+ Lars Nittve Keynote Lecture Series:
Antony Gormley

Join British sculptor Antony Gormley in the inaugural session of the M+ Lars Nittve Keynote Lecture Series.

Antony Gormley’s artistic practice questions the transformational potential of sculpture and how it can be rooted to its place to empower collective engagement. In this talk, the artist will shed light on why he left his studio practice to pursue site-specific, collaborative projects, including Asian Field housed at M+. He will ask who art can be for, what it can do, how it can be seen, and what changing contexts—temporal, geographical, and environmental—can mean for both art makers and viewers.

The M+ Lars Nittve Keynote Lecture Series invites renowned artists and scholars to share insights on broader cultural ideas and topics.

Simultaneous interpretation in Cantonese will be available. Click on ‘Get Tickets’ to register and receive the Zoom meeting link via email.

About the Speaker

Antony Gormley (b. 1950, London) is widely acclaimed for his sculptures, installations, and public artworks that investigate the relationship of the human body to space. His work has developed the potential of sculpture since the 1960s through a critical engagement with both his own body and those of others in a way that confronts fundamental questions of where human beings stand in relation to nature and the cosmos. Gormley continually tries to identify the space of art as a place of becoming in which new behaviours, thoughts and feelings can arise.
