The RCA Visual Cultures Lecture Series is presenting Mark Leckey’s project The Universal Addressability of the Dumb Things – a show he curated as part of the Hayward Touring. (From February to October 2013: The Bluecoat, Liverpool, Nottingham Contemporary, De La Warr Pavilion, Bexhill on Sea).
Leckey’s practice ranges across performance, film, sculpture and sound, often creating a space where personal and cultural histories merge and transform. He has exhibited widely, with recent solo exhibitions at the Hammer Museum, Los Angeles; Serpentine Gallery, London, Kölnischer Kunstverein, Cologne; ICA, London; and Le Consortium, Dijon. Leckey was awarded the Turner Prize in 2008.
The Royal College of Art Visual Cultures Lecture Series 2013/2014, under the title Current Modes of Artistic Production, invites artists to investigate various aspects that contribute to the production, circulation and reception of their work. Through in-depth focus on a specific project of each guest speaker, the series aims to give an insight into the complex fabric of artistic production and explore what it means to work as an artist today.
