Artist Conversation with Katrín Sigurðardóttir
On the occasion of her major exhibition at the MSU Broad, artist Katrín Sigurðardóttir will be joined in conversation by curator and writer Hesse McGraw and architectural designer Anya Sirota. With the exhibition as backdrop, the participants will approach the artist’s practice each from their unique vantage points, touching on topics such as the role of memory within the built environment, the interplay of chance and intention within the creative process, and micro and macro cycles of change and transformation—in personal, collective, and historical terms. In a world increasingly shaped by movement, migration, and the formation of hybrid identities, how might art—in particular the art of Katrín Sigurðardóttir—offer opportunities for more nuanced and poetic understandings of what it means to become and belong.
Katrín Sigurðardóttir is organized by the Eli and Edythe Broad Art Museum at Michigan State University and curated by Steven L. Bridges, Associate Curator. Lead support for this exhibition is provided by a gift from Hari Kern. Additional support comes from the Eli and Edythe Broad endowed exhibitions fund. The work Metamorphic was commissioned by the San Francisco Art Institute with the support of The Harker Fund of the San Francisco Foundation. On view through March 1, 2020.
