Nikolas Gambaroff: The paralyzing presence of other people; or how to live in a self-induced identity crisis.

Lecture20 June 2018, 19:00Lichthalle, Städelschule, Dürerstraße 10, 60596 Frankfurt am Main

Nikolas Gambaroff will talk about selected exhibitions throughout his practice. The idea is to look at patterns within the process of making rather than purely at specific objects, or at closed arrangements such as art shows. Considering this talk as a framing of processes and representations of objects, it should be understood as something akin to an act of memory. Speculating on what an art practice is or can be, hopefully touching it beyond the actual objects or exhibitions.

Nikolas Gambaroff was born in Germany in 1979, and currently lives and works in New York and Los Angeles. He studied at Humboldt University and the University of the Arts in Berlin and received an MFA from Bard College in New York in 2007. Even though mostly identifying as a painter, Gambaroff’s work has found form in an array of different media; from painting and sculpture, to video, performance and installation. Consistently playing with the expectations of the audience, the work oscillates between a modernist understanding of the artwork as autonomous object and its dissolution into a field of networked relations.

Recent solo exhibitions include The Kitchen, New York, Overduin &. Co., Los Angeles, Meyer Kainer in Vienna, Gio Marconi in Milan, The Power Station in Dallas, White Cube in London. Gambaroff’s work has been included in exhibitions at the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York, the Institute of Contemporary Art in London, the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago, the New Museum in New York, Kunsthalle Zurich, Bergen Kunsthalle, Gropius Bau, Berlin, ZKM, Karlsruhe.
