Lecture by artist Tallur L.N.: Interference
Monday, October 07, 2019, 04:00pm - 06:00pm
The South Asian Studies Program and Department of Art History at Rutgers University are pleased to present a public lecture by
Tallur L.N., discussing recent sculpture and moving image works
Tallur's retrospective exhibition is currently on display at Grounds for Sculpture in Hamilton, NJ, marking his status as one of the first contemporary Indian artists to earn a solo mid-career retrospective in the US. In this special lecture, Tallur will discuss his artistic practice and the role of moving between his two homes in rural Karnataka and industrial South Korea in exploring how humans navigate the absurdities of a world rife with competing anxieties, desires, and fears. At a moment in our collective history when society is often at odds with itself, and the lines between reality or truth can sometimes feel arbitrary, Tallur’s work amplifies and distorts what we hold as true or sacred and illuminates paradoxes and contradictions.
A recipient of The Skoda Prize for Indian Contemporary Art, Tallur has exhibited internationally, including solo exhibitions in Germany, South Korea, India, China, and the United States. Tallur received a BFA in Painting from Chamarajendra Academy of Visual Arts (1996), an MFA in Museology from Maharaja Sayyajirao University (1998), and an MA in Contemporary Fine Art Practice from Leeds Metropolitan University (2002). Tallur was born in Karnataka, India in 1971. He splits his time between his rural family home in Karnataka, India and the industrial urban city of Daegu, South Korea.
