- Interact With Art
31st January 2013
Speakers: William Kentridge, Vivan Sundaram, Nalini Malani
Moderator: Gayatri Sinha
The symposium saw Nalini Malani, Vivan Sundaram and William Kentridge present their views on their art practice, most of art making and the intense engagement with the world as process rather than fact.
William Kentridge spoke about how the indeterminacy involved in the process of creating art enables the artist to accept the emerging form and sparks recognition, which according to him is the driving force behind the practice, of making art and receiving art. Nalini Malani delineated her art practice which has always emphasized the process and the ephemeral rather than the actual object. Vivan Sundaram explained his art practice as one, which seeks to bring together fragments out of chaos and entropy and orchestrate their coming in order for the found object- which is neutral- to start acquiring an expressive quality.
This was the fifth symposium in the Museum Document series, curated by Gayatri Sinha.
