Artist Talk with Meghan Forbes

Artist Talk with Meghan Forbes at the Helwaser Gallery

On the occasion of Helwaser Gallery's current solo show, Anton Ginzburg: VIEWs, we are pleased to present an artist dialogue featuring Ginzburg with Meghan Forbes, MoMA C-Map Fellow and author of the essay for the forthcoming exhibition catalogue.

The conversation will discuss the lines of continuity between theories of viewing proposed by two artists of historical avant-garde, Mikhail Matyushin and Władysław Strzeminski, and Ginzburg's methodology in his paintings, sculptures, and videos.⁣ The discussion creates a unique opportunity to delve into the artist’s contemporary vision on Constructivism, and will be complemented by excerpts from Forbes' catalogue essay. ⠀
