In partnership with the Groundwork project, the internationally celebrated curator, James Lingwood will give a talk at Falmouth University.

James Lingwood has been Co-Director of Artangel with Michael Morris since 1991, commissioning and producing numerous memorable site-specific works of art in unexpected places, and several projects for TV, film, radio and the web.

Artangel’s innovative curatorial and commissioning model has effectively pushed the boundaries, collaborating with artists to realise their most imaginative and ambitious works, such as the Turner Prize-winning House by Rachel Whiteread (1993), Break Down by Michael Landy (2001) and Seizure by Roger Hiorns (2008–2010), nominated for the Turner Prize in 2009. Other commissions have included international artists, musicians and writers such as Jeremy Deller, Francis Alÿs, Matthew Barney, Steve McQueen, Ben Rivers, David Byrne, Laurie Anderson, and John Berger.

Artangel is a charitable organisation funded by trusts, foundations, Arts Council England and individual patrons known as Angels. Most Artangel projects are installations and events created for a specific location, however a number of film and video works are also regularly on display at UK galleries and museums.

In addition to his work with Artangel, Lingwood has curated exhibitions for arts institutions internationally, including major survey exhibitions with Bernd & Hilla Becher, Vija Celmins, Susan Hiller, Juan Muñoz, Juliao Sarmento, Thomas Struth and Thomas Schütte. He is a Trustee of The Art Fund and The Paul Hamlyn Foundation and advisor to the 176 / Zabludowicz Collection programme, the London Design Festival and Fondazione Ratti in Como.

This event is organised by CAST as part of Groundwork, and is supported and hosted by Falmouth School of Art as part of the School of Art’s Guest Speakers series. Lectures are open to students and the public. Admission is free but booking is required via the Eventbrite website.

Groundwork is a three-year project bringing international contemporary art to Cornwall, supported by Arts Council England. Field trips, workshops and events during 2016 and 2017 are building towards a season of new commissions and sited work opening in May 2018.
