Lecture Cycle: Dissymmetrical Similarities. For visually and hearing impaired visitors

6 July – 31 October 2016

DESCRIPTION

Garage Museum of Contemporary Art presents the first three lectures from Irina Kulik’s popular course adapted for visually and hearing impaired visitors.

Each lecture of the course is a kind of virtual curatorial project, which throws together two artists whose relations are built differently every time:  it may be an obvious antagonism or a secret alliance, continuity, stylization, parody, contesting, similarity with a hint of disagreement or a dialogue. But however the two are related, the encounter should help discover new dimensions in the art of each.

Lectures will be accompanied by audio description and Russian Sign Language interpretation. The course invites visually and hearing impaired visitors to learn more about the theory and practice of contemporary art and the seminal artists of the 20th and 21st century.
