FIG Talk – Gavin Turk: Fake Pop vs. Real
August 16, 2014 by FIG
Andy Warhol and Richard Bernstein (photographer unknown).
Much of Gavin Turk’s work deals with issues of authorship, authenticity and identity. He is concerned with the ‘myth’ of the artist and the ‘authorship’ of a work. He shares with FIG an interest in and a fascination with all things Warhol and has appropriated Warhol’s work in the production of his own. We thought he might have something interesting to say about Warhol and Bernstein, fake Pop versus real, so we’ve invited him to the gallery to share his ideas. FIG Talks Presents Gavin Turk. Hoorah!
Warhol vs. Bernstein, Fake Pop vs. Real
Tuesday 19th August 6-8pm
