Join artist Viktor Popović in conversation with art historian and Curator Katherine Carl, for an intimate talk about the artist's past, present, and future projects. Popović's work often uses found objects and raw industrial materials in installations that probe the relationship between artwork, object, history and environment.
The conversation will be in conjunction with Split Archives, a solo exhibition that brings together over thirty works created in the last three years by Popović, marking his inaugural exhibition with C24 Gallery and in the United States. Using strategies of appropriation, and the application of archival research methods, Popović investigates history and collective social memory through his installations.
