RICHARD DEACON ARTIST TALK: FEBRUARY 4, 2013 @ 6 PM, KATARA BUILDING 15
On occasion of Katara Galleries current “Encounter” exhibition, co-curated with the Royal Academy in the UK, the Katara Education Department has invited RA artist Richard Deacon for a residency program at Katara Art Studios. Richard will be with us from the 4th to the 9th of February based at the Katara Art Studios, from where he will be orienting and guiding Qatari artists wanting to improve their artistic practice and skills.
In the spirit of knowledge sharing and exchange between Katara and the Royal Academy, and between Qatar and the UK, we start our Richard Deacon Residency program with a public talk where the artist will present himself to the Qatari audience and give us an overview of his work and career to date.
Join us on the 4th of February from 6 PM at Katara Building 15 for the Artist Talk followed by a Richard Deacon in Conversation Session with one of the “Encounter” exhibition Curators, Sa’id Costa and Qatari Artists Faraj Daham and Mubarak Al Malik, both with artwork featured in the exhibition.
The audience will be encouraged to participate in the discussion at the Question and Answers session.
