Talk

Shaun Gladwell and Rafael Rozendaal: In Conversation

Working ahead of the curve can be thrilling and challenging in equal measure. In this event, two celebrated contemporary artists, who each have broken new ground in their different mediums, interview each other about what it takes to take their work to the world.

How do you get the world to pay attention when you’re doing something new? How do you combine your passions and hobbies into a commercially successful career?

Australian artist Shaun Gladwell’s famed video works explore the body in motion in the urban environment, through the street subcultures of skateboarding, BMX bike riding and beat boxing. Gladwell represented Australia at the 53rd Venice Biennale, and in 2009 travelled to Afghanistan as the official Australian War Artist. Rafaël Rozendaal is a Dutch-Brazilian artist, based in New York, who sells websites as art. He is a pioneer of bringing art into our newest public realm – online – and was one of the first artists to capitalise on the commodity of the domain name.

The work of Gladwell and Rozendaal occupies and disrupts public spaces, whether they are physical or online. They open the cultures and pursuits of daily life for artistic contemplation. Their art renegotiates how we navigate these spaces, whilst questioning what we value and dismantling the art object.
