Lecture: Experiencing Ragnar Kjartansson

 

FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 18, NOON
LOCATION: FRIST CENTER FOR THE VISUAL ARTS FREE

Icelandic performance artist Ragnar Kjartansson’s hypnotic and playful video installation "The Visitors" has been called “a generational masterpiece” by The Boston Globe. Presented on nine large screens, "The Visitors" includes film of musicians situated throughout an aging mansion, providing an intimate environment that seems to ache with forlorn memory. Together, the musicians repeat a sweetly melancholic composition, which gradually swells to an emotionally stirring finale that culminates in the musicians leaving their isolated rooms and joining together in a harmonious group. Chief curator Mark Scala will discuss Kjartansson’s work in the context of durational performance, a contemporary art genre that explores questions of stamina, intimacy, relevance and slowness in contemporary life.
