Artist Talk: Nathan Beard

DateOctober 29 2022
Time1:00 PM - 2:00 PM

Hear from artist Nathan Beard about his solo exhibition at PICA, A Puzzlement. Facilitated by PICA Curator Sarah Wall, Nathan will delve into the rich, varied and sometimes mischievous concepts underpinning this major exhibition, including his recent six-month residency at ACME Studios in London, UK, and fascination with Looney Tunes.  During this residency Nathan spent time researching archival collections of Thai artefacts to consider the role and legacy of colonial archives in historically informing and shaping Western visions of Thainess, and the complex intertwining of colonialism, pop culture, and cultural stereotypes.
