Artist Talk: Andres Serrano
19:00 on 4 December 2018
Royal College of Physicians of Edinburgh
Join us for an artist talk by Andres Serrano at the Royal College of Physicians.
Tickets £ 8
Between 29 November 2018 – 3 March 2019, Stills will be showing a selection of recent photographs from Serrano’s ‘Torture’ series commissioned by socio-political arts organization a/political in 2015.
This talk, which will take place in the Great Hall at the Royal College of Physicians, has been organised to accompany the show, with Serrano flying in from New York to speak in Scotland about his practice for the first time. The talk will be followed by a book signing in the New Library.
Since the 1980’s Andres Serrano’s work has sparked debate and raised questions about censorship, taste, public decency and acceptable modes of expression. In 1987 Serrano received international attention for his work ‘Piss Christ’, a photograph of a small plastic crucifix submerged in a tank of the artist’s urine. The work ignited a national debate on the freedom of artistic expression and the public financing of controversial artworks.
