For this event, the artists will be joined in conversation by Dr Simon Baker, Director of the Maison Européenne de la Photographie, Paris.

Artist Talk: System as Medium and System as Motif, Goro Murayama

Systems Art is an approach associated with the dematerialisation of artworks, the tendency towards taking information and process as a medium, and the rise of cybernetic art in contemporary art. For this event Murayama will be joined in conversation by Dr Francis Halsall, art historian and author of the book “Systems of Art” (2008), to discuss how the artist connects the idea of Autopoiesis, self-sustaining systems, to his artistic practice in the hemp painting series, as well as to other bodies of works that explore the systems we live in.
