Art Video for Kids: David Shrigley

Concurrent with our new exhibitions Michael Bell-Smith: Mall, Punk and I Heard You Laughing, we are screening a selection of video works by British artist David Shrigley in our lobby as part of our Art Video for Kids program.

David Shrigley (b. 1968) is an artist and illustrator best known for his mordantly humorous cartoons. Self-branded as an outsider in the art world, Shrigley is known for making flat compositions that take on the inconsequential, the bizarre, and the disquieting elements of everyday life. Like the musings of a very wise child displaying the wit and humor of a seasoned observer of the adult world, his illustrations and animations feature darkly funny aphorisms about the world.

Shrigley's work has been exhibited widely, including solo shows at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco, Statens Museum for Kunst in Copenhagen, the Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum in Glasgow, and the Hammer Museum in Los Angeles. In 2013, he was nominated for the prestigious Turner Prize for his solo show David Shrigley: Brain Activity at the Hayward Gallery in London.

Interview: Myriam Ben Salah and Martha Kirszenbaum

I heard you laughing, a group exhibition of video work from the Middle East and its broad acceptation, is on view at Kunsthall Stavanger from November 9, 2017 – January 14, 2018. Curated by Myriam Ben Salah and Martha Kirszenbaum, the exhibition challenges stereotypical narratives of struggle and rhetoric of the past often associated with Middle Eastern artwork. Below, the curators further describe their research and motivation behind the exhibition.

Opening on November 9: Mall Punk, I Heard You Laughing and Shrigley Films

We are pleased to invite you to the opening of two new exhibitions at Kunsthall Stavanger, November 9, 6 - 8 pm.

Mall, Punk by American artist Michael Bell-Smith presents digital animations and appropriations that wryly reflect upon our cultural moment. Visual elements from games, advertising, interiors, and corporate design, among other places, are oddly positioned within unexpected conceptual frameworks. 

Concurrently, Kunsthall Stavanger will open I Heard You Laughing, an exhibition of video work from the Middle East in its broad acceptation, curated by Myriam Ben Salah and Martha Kirszenbaum. The exhibition challenges the rote narratives of struggle and rhetoric of the past in relation to Middle Eastern artwork, and instead offers videos from iconic Middle-Eastern musicians of the 1950s-60s-70s alongside video works by contemporary artists that reflect the complexities of this often oversimplified ‘East-West’ configuration.

Welcome!
