Stanley Picker Public Lectures 2017 at ICA London: Georgina Starr

7 July 2017

Georgina Starr is a British artist working with video, sound and performance. Her works are known for their complex and fragile emotional narratives, in which she explores female identity, history and fiction to create multi-layered theatrical events and installations. Starr often appears in the artwork, either as a performer or narrator. The inherently speculative truth of memory and biography are endlessly transformed and explored through her work—“Everything happens as if it were experienced twice, as though recorded, listened again and rewritten, once for herself and then again for the stranger inside her.” Georgina Starr has exhibited widely over the last 25 years in galleries and museums both in the UK and internationally, from Museum of Contemporary Art Sydney and Tate Britain to Kunsthalle Zurich in Switzerland and Museum of Modern Art in New York. A major survey of her work titled, Hello. Come here. I want you. opens at Frac Franche-Comté in May 2017 and runs until September.

Since 2014, the ICA has collaborated with The Contemporary Art Research Centre at Kingston University, London to host the Stanley Picker Public Lectures on Art. The programme was established in 2007 by the artist Elizabeth Price to provide a platform for prominent contemporary artists and thinkers to present their ideas and work to a public audience.

The Stanley Picker Public Lectures are kindly supported by the Stanley Picker Trust.
