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.

Art Video for Kids: Ingela Ihrman

Coinciding with our current exhibition Systema Naturae, we've curated a selection of video works by Swedish artist Ingela Ihrman for our Art Video for Kids.

Ingela Ihrman (b. 1985) is an artist based in Malmö. Ihrman's practice moves freely between performance art, video, installation, and writing. Costumes and staged situations are reoccurring elements in her work, bringing creatures into life through giving birth or blooming. Her work is characterized by tactile craft techniques, hobbyism, and poetic absurdism, and borrows from amateur theatre as well as from science. Limiting norms, notions like loneliness and belonging, and relations between different life forms are discussed within her work.
