Alternative Narratives in Public Space – A Public Lecture by Iván Argote

Friday 29 April, 1pm at Hugh Lane Gallery

In partnership with Sculpture Dublin, the Hugh Lane Gallery will host an illustrated talk by commissioned artist, Iván Argote.

Iván Argote has been awarded the Sculpture Dublin land art commission for St Anne’s Park. He will discuss his ideas for the commission in the context of his wider practice.

Iván Argote is a Colombian artist and film director based in Paris. Through his sculptures, installations, films and interventions, he questions our relation with others, with power structures and belief systems. He develops strategies based on tenderness, affect and humour through which he generates critical approaches to dominant historical narratives. In his interventions on monuments, large-scale ephemeral and permanent artworks, Iván Argote proposes new symbolic and political uses of public space.
