Gray Nicol - Special Event Invitation

Gray Nicol - Special Event Invitation

This Thursday we invite you to attend RE: CALL Gray Nicol performs Duck Calling 1978.

On the occasion of the exhibition 40yearsvideoart.de the Adam Art Gallery in association with the Film Archive is proud to present an event that unearths the practice of enigmatic post-object New Zealand artist Gray Nicol. For the first time in 30 years, Gray will re-stage his performance work Duck Calling (1978).

This absurd and humorous performance will be contextualised by a screening of his video works from the 1970s and a discussion of his performance practice. This event brings to light a practitioner from New Zealand's own history of video art practice, whose work is a playful and reflexive investigation of the video medium, which resonates with the concerns of contemporary video artists.

Thursday June 12, 7pm
