Martha Rosler
Talking Art

Saturday 29 September 2007, 14.00 – 15.30

The second event in the Talking Art series features renowned American artist Martha Rosler in conversation with Iwona Blazwick, Director of The Whitechapel.

Martha Rosler is one of the most influential artists of her generation whose work frequently compels the viewer to rethink the boundaries between the public and the private, the social and political. Her work centres on everyday life and the public sphere, often with an eye to women’s experience, and encompasses works in video, photo-text, installation, and performance, as well as writing about art and culture.

In collaboration with Art Monthly
