Art NOW: Santiago Mostyn

September 13, 12:00pm - 01:00pm
Join us on Friday, September 13 for Art NOW with Santiago Mostyn
12-12:50 PM
University of Lethbridge, Recital Hall
 
Santiago Mostyn (b. 1981) makes films, installations and performances that test the divide between disparate cultural spheres, employing an intuitive process to engage with a knowledge and history grounded equally in the body and the rational mind. He is based in Sweden but maintains strong ties to Zimbabwe and Trinidad & Tobago, the countries of his upbringing. 
 
Mostyn co-curated the Moderna Exhibition 2018: With the Future Behind Us, Moderna Museet’s most recent survey of contemporary art in Sweden, and has exhibited widely at venues including the Gothenburg Biennial (2017), Moderna Museet (2016), Kunsthall Stavanger (2014), and Malmö Konsthall (2013). Forthcoming exhibitions in 2019 include Not a Single Story II at Wanås Konst, Survival Kit 10.1 at LCCA Riga, and The Measure of All Things: On the (In)Human at Lunds Konsthall. 
 
The SAAG is proud to be a partner of the University of Lethbridge’s Art NOW lecture series. Encompassing presentations by artists, curators, art historians, filmmakers, and gallerists, Art NOW is one of the largest and longest running programs in the country, having hosted more than 700 presenters over more than four decades.
 
Supported by the Canada Council, the course offers presentations by artists, art historians, curators, theorists and critics. Up to three different speakers per week, representing a wide range of contemporary practices, discuss their art, ideas, working methods, and issues in the visual arts. With about 30 speakers per semester, Art NOW is an amazing resource for anyone interested in contemporary art. Best of all, the lectures are open to the public - everyone is welcome!
 
The SAAG contributes to the diverse spectrum of presenters by recommending our roster of contemporary practicing artists as guests.
