Throughout her celebrated career, Berlin-based South African artist Candice Breitz has shown her moving-image installations around the world. Breitz’s work explores the dynamics of the self in relation to communities shaped not only by questions of national belonging, race, gender and religion, but also by the increasingly undeniable influence of television, cinema and pop culture more generally. Most recently, her work has focussed on the conditions that produce empathy in our media-saturated world. In 2017, together with Mohau Modisakeng, Breitz is representing South Africa at the 57th Venice Biennale.
This special MTalks event sees Candice Breitz live in conversation with Melbourne curator Natalie King, who this year curated the Australian Pavilion at the 57th International Art Exhibition, Venice Biennale. Join us in the amphitheatre for what we know will be an eye-opening and mind-expanding discussion.
