CHART 2019

Portrait of Jockum Nordström.

As CHART gets closer, we are proud to present our extensive 2019 talks programme. In line with this year’s theme, materiality, CHART Talks allows for new reflections on materials, methods and processes behind distinctive creative practices. Take a look at some of the highlights.

MRTIN BOYCE, NINA BEYER, ELMGREEN & DRAGSET – NASHER PRIZE DIALOGUES: SCULPTURE + DESIGN

This talk is part of the discursive platform of the Nasher Prize, an annual award given to an artist who has made a tremendous impact on the practise of sculpture. In a panel discussion, contemporary artists will discuss the ways in which they each deploy architecture and design within their artistic practices.

JOCKUM NORDSTROM – ALL I HAVE LEARNED AND FORGOTTEN AGAIN

The Swedish artist Jockum Nordströms works is said to read like storyboards, and he often refers to them as “stills”, where all the action takes place simultaneously within a frozen frame. How is his approach to creating these environments? Moderator, visual artist and writer, Erik Steffensen helps us find out.

JEANETTE EHLERS – REWRITING HISTORY

In conversation with Director of Rønnebæksholm Lotte Juul Pedersen, artist Jeanette Ehlers will share how she works with the possibility for empowerment and healing, honouring legacies of resistance in the African diaspora, and merging the historical, the collective and the rebellious with the familial, the bodily and the poetic.

AVIDA BYSTROM & CHLOE WISE – REPRESENTATION AND FIGURATION

Emerging Swedish artist Arvida Byström and Canadian artist Chloe Wise are both occupied with the question about representation and figuration in the arts. In this talk we will get closer to how they work with representing a diversity of bodies and identities – and how they employ different methods in doing so.

LINE ULRIKA CHISTIANSEN, PERNILLE STOCKMARR, KATHRINE BARBOE BENDIXEN AND KAJSA WILLNER – MATERIALITY OF THE FUTURE

How are the new generation of designers working with new materials as a starting point for their designs? This is what the exhibition curators behind this year’s talent exhibition Curio, titled Matters – Rethinking Material, reflects upon.
