Why Words Now : Beth Collar
Please join us for lunch to meet Danish Greenlandic artist group SIIKU, comprising David H. Péronard and Rasmus Nielsen.
At this Free Lunch, SIIKU will present their artistic practice and discuss the theme of “political art in a new era.” Everyone will be welcomed into a discussion about art made for a specific purpose and think about questions like: Is it possible to create art with ‘new nature’ and still provide a personal and engaging experience?
Also joining the conversation is writer and psychologist Silja E. K. Henderson, who published the book 1,7 Tipping Point back in 2018.
Please notice, the conversation is in Danish, a vegetarian meal is served.
ABOUT THE ARTIST GROUP
SIIKU is a Danish Greenlandic artist group, named after ‘ice’ in Greenlandic. The group is founded in 2017 by Rasmus Nielsen (b. 1984, Lyngby) and David H. Péronard (b. 1981, Nuuk) to create solidarity and empowerment during times with climate crises and increased global inequality.
ABOUT FREE LUNCH SERIES
Art Hub is dedicated to creating contact and interaction among younger artists. Every other Tuesday we invite the art world and public to a free lunch where they can enjoy an informal conversation with a young, professional visual artist. The artist is invited to talk about their practice, current research or new ideas – and to explore the issues that are part of every art practice.
