One | On | One: Tal R & Anders Kold
On Thursday 7 December, artist Tal R and curator Anders Kold will delve deeper into their influences during the second One | On | One lecture.
Tal R is widely recognized for his distinctive and vibrant works that span various mediums, including painting, drawing, sculpture, and installation. His art often explores themes of identity, memory, and the intersection of cultures. His artistic practice is characterized by a rich, bold use of colour and a unique, almost childlike approach to form and composition, which adds an intriguing element of naivety to his work. He studied at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in Copenhagen, Denmark, where he now resides and works.
Recent solo exhibitions include, among others, Tal R: The Wrong Side at Artipelag in Stockholm, Sweden (2022); Tal R & Mamma Andersson - About Hill at Malmö Konstmuseum, Sweden (2023). His work is featured in the collections of institutions such as the Art Institute of Chicago (Chicago), Centre Pompidou (Paris), the Rema Hort Mann Foundation (New York), Moderna Museet (Stockholm), Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen (Rotterdam), and the Walker Art Center (Minneapolis).
Since 2001, Anders Kold has held the position of Curator and Head of Acquisitions at the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art in Copenhagen. In recent years, he has curated exhibitions featuring the works of artists such as Tal R, Ed Ruscha, Cecily Brown, Ann Veronica Janssens, Troels Wörsel, Pia Arke, Mika Rottenberg, Richard Prince, and Dana Schutz. Currently, Kold is preparing upcoming solo exhibitions featuring Kaari Upson and Michel Majerus.
One | On | One lecture series
Some encounters are life-changing. A single artwork can form or influence a curator’s trajectory and vision, while some exhibitions prove decisive for an artist’s practice. In this series of talks, an artist and a curator focus on a single artwork and an exhibition that has been pivotal for their career and collaboration.
