Bowman, Matthew (2023) In conversation with Sam Durant and Jes Fernie. In: ARTIST’S TALK + AN ARCHIVE OF DESTRUCTION, 26 April 2023, Art Exchange, University of Essex. (Unpublished)

Full text not available from this repository.


We are excited to be joined by artist Sam Durant and curator and writer Jes Fernie.

Artist Sam Durant will expand on the ideas behind the making of his work, including the placing of his drawings of fallen monuments back in public spaces, as he brings attention to questions of representation: who gets to occupy these spaces – and who gets to be heard.

We are also joined by curator and writer Jes Fernie who will tell us about her ‘Archive of Destruction’, a platform that brings together narratives around destruction and public art. Spanning a hundred years and many continents, it tells cumulative stories of vulnerability, interference, rage, fear, boredom and love.

The event will be chaired by art critic Matthew Bowman and a Q&A will be followed by a drinks reception at Art Exchange
