The artist Swetlana Heger is set to give her Re-Modelling Art conference on Wednesday, 21st January at 19:30 at the Cultural Observatory programme. Free entry subject to available seating.
The Cultural Observatory is the ideal setting from which to analyse and explore the immediate future through the telling accounts of prominent experts from a wide range of different disciplines, including sociology, economics, politics and art.
Swetlana Heger lives and works in Berlin and is an internationally respected artist. Since the mid-nineties, her work has been characterised by her clear and decisive views on society and it successfully bridges the gap between art and fashion. It reflects heavily on the relationships between art, commerce and corporate patronage, allowing her to collaborate with the likes of Adidas, BMW and Hermés. Her most recent work unveiled in Paris tackles the subject of artists against the backdrop of globalised capitalism.
Her most recent exhibitions have been held at the COMA (Berlin), the Musée des Beaux Arts (Dole), EFFEarte (Milan), La Salle des Bains (Lyon), Haus am Waldsee (Berlin) and the Artists Space (New York).
Her conference is entitled Re-Modelling Art and focuses on her numerous collaborations with partners, which have allowed her to explore, through her work, the relationships between artistic creativity and economic production.
The next event on the horizon at the Cultural Observatory will be held this coming Wednesday 28th of January. The conference in question will be given by the artist Alicia Framis, and will centre on the Guantanamo Museum exhibition, which can be seen at the Gabinete de Exposiciones (exhibition section) of Palacio de Altamira until February 16th.
