Ryan Gander in San Francisco, 2012

Graduate Lecture Series

Tuesday, March 13, 2012, 7:00–9:00 pm

Timken Lecture Hall, 1111 Eighth Street San Francisco, CA 94107

The Wattis Institute is pleased to host a lecture by London-based artist Ryan Gander, our spring Capp Street Project artist in residence and one of the featured artists in the Wattis' ongoing Magnificent Seven program. Gander's idea-based practice appropriates elements from different disciplines -- from architecture to urbanism, design, or language -- to suggest narratives that defy artistic conventions and evade popular culture or personal experience. Loose Associations (2002) was an ongoing performance work that rapidly gained him international recognition. Taking the form of a lecture series, the piece allowed Gander to engage in verbal digressions through topics as diverse as "desire lines," furniture design, and Morse code. Puzzles also play a key role in Gander's practice. In recent years he has produced curios and complex works, for instance Bauhaus Revisited (2005), a chess set based on Joseph Hartwig's 1924 didactical redesign of the game.
