On 18 May Gregg Smith’s project will be shown to the public and presented by the artist in a conversation with fellow artist Jill Magid (1973, USA). Magid works as a director and performer in public space and her work refers to our society’s ubiquitous ‘disciplinary systems’, such as camera surveillance. Projects by Magid have recently been presented at the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam and at the 2004 Liverpool Biennale. She lives in New York and is a ‘visiting artist’ at the Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art. More information on her and her work can be found on www.evidencelocker.net and www.libration-point.net.
