Liam Gillick Week in Fort Worth TX.


Liam Gillick emerged as part of the generation of "Young British Artists"  in the 1980s and 1990s. He is now  considered one of the most influential and interesting artists in contemporary art.  His diverse mode of art practice—often associated with "relational aesthetics"—complicates object production, embraces the exhibition as medium, and explores the social role and function of art. Gillick gave a fabulous lecture at the Modern here in Fort Worth last night and his show over at the TCU Contempory gallery opens this Friday from 6-8pm. 
Then drive on over to  3 Propositions and a Musical Scenario from 8-10pm, inspired by Mr. Gillick and conceived as a sort of art after performance to his opening event.
