ARTCHAT with Ashlee Laing
When: Thursday 14 January, 6.00pm - 7.00pm
Where: Paul Ramsay Galleries, MAMA.
Join us for ARTCHAT, a monthly chat with a current exhibiting artist, hosted by our Members.
This month we're joined by artist Ashlee Laing, one of the twenty artists currently exhibiting in 20:20.
Join us for a live conversation in the museum as he speaks to his new series Personal Tabloid, commissioned for 20:20.
Ashlee Laing is interested in the politics of belonging and in finding new ways to challenge existing social borders and cultural boundaries.
A central concern of Laing’s work is a personal response to dominant authorities and cultures that contradict his ideal of an inclusively diverse society, one that respects not only fundamental rights and freedoms but also the social, cultural and sexual identities of individuals. Laing’s art is instantaneous, direct and without apology.
By encouraging the audience to engage with politically loaded topics, Laing creates dynamic spaces open to dialogues. Laing’s artistic practice provides a powerful and often challenging commentary on what it means to look for a safe place to belong within contemporary society.
Refreshments available from 5.45pm at the bar, contactless payments preferred.
Members receive a free glass of Campbells Wine at the event.
