On the opening night of Cultural Matter: Amalia Ulman, Susan Gibb (director at Western Front) will engage in conversation with the artist. Starting from Ulman’s project Privilege, their talk will revolve around the use of fiction in her work. The talk will be live streamed on LIMA’s YouTube channel. The talk will be followed by a Q&A moderated by curators Sanneke Huisman and Jan Robert Leegte, for which the audience is invited to participate via chat!
Amalia Ulman

The work of visual artist Amalia Ulman (1989, Argentina) deals with issues of class, gender and sexuality. She uses elements of performance art alongside installations, video, photography and Internet art. She is considered one of the first artists to enter the world of museums with work created on social media. Solo exhibitions of her work have been held around the world and Excellences and Perfections has been included in numerous group exhibitions, including Performing for the Camera at Tate Modern, London, in 2016. Ulman lives and works in Los Angeles, United States.

Susan Gibb

Susan Gibb is the director of Western Front - an artist-run center for contemporary art and new music which cultivates programs in Exhibitions, Media Art and New Music as well as an extensive archive of audio-visual materials. Prior to her role at Western Front, Gibbs was in the position of curator for six years at If I Can’t Dance, I Don’t Want To Be Part Of Your Revolution, a production house for performance related art and research in Amsterdam. Her multidisciplinary curatorial work also includes positions at the Carriageworks art centre and Campbelltown Arts Centre in Sydney. 

Cultural Matter

Cultural Matter is a series of exhibitions and events that provide a platform for the international discussion of digital art and highlights the enduring expressive power of digital artworks: works in which art and technology and the past and the future come together in a way that is as logical as it is groundbreaking.

This edition of Cultural Matter questions, presents and discusses Ulman's work in the online space. An online space will be created especially for this exhibition where artist, speaker and audience meet. Two experts, Susan Gibb (Pt.I) and João Laia (Pt.II), will shed light on the work, Ulman's multidisciplinary approach and the performativity of online and offline platforms. They approach this from a critical and feminist perspective, which is so characteristic of Ulman's work.
