Question the Wall Itself

Liam Gillick, Consultation Partition, 2000.

Artists Kerstin Brätsch, Liam Gillick, and David Reed discuss the influence of Blinky Palermo and his work on subsequent generations. In addressing what could be called the "Palermo Effect," the conversation will consider how temporary exhibition strategies play off and complicate existing architecture, the relationship between abstraction and iconography, the use of persona, and how Palermo's "provisional formalism," as Gillick has previously termed it, might be used today.
