CONVERSATIONS WITH ART
Güler Ates in conversation with Victoria Rance
Friday 24 January 2017 | 5.30pm to 6.15pm
These conversations consist of dialogues between the artist, the questioner and the audience directly through an art work in the studio. Each month the will focus on a different artist and art work.
The fourth conversation of this season will be between Victoria Rance and the artist Güler Ates. The work under discussion will be a photograph created in the Royal Academy of Arts Research Library.
Güler Ates is from Eastern Turkey and has been living and working in London since 1999. She explores female identity through the lens of the artist’s own experiences of cross-cultural displacement as well as accepted models of culture in the West. She graduated from the Royal College of Art with a MA in Fine Art in 2008 and works with video, photography, printmaking and performance. Her work can be found in the print collections of the Victoria & Albert Museum, the Royal Academy of Art, Government Collection and at the Museu de Arte do Rio, Rio de Janeiro.
Seating in the studio is limited. Please arrive in the downstairs gallery before 5.30pm to be escorted Tim Cousins’ studio is on the second floor. The conversation will last 45 minutes.
