TALKS ABOUT ART IN PUBLIC SPACE: NIL YALTER

Nil Yalter, born 1938 in Cairo and raised in Istanbul, has been living in Paris since 1965. The feminist movement around the year 1968, which the artist was actively engaged in, has a strong influence on her overall artistic work to this day. In her work she combines research into social, political, feminist, and formal-aesthetical issues into a distinct artistic language. Migration, exile, the working class, and the social position of the woman have been recurring themes throughout her longstanding career. The formulation of new topics for the gallery context, such as the life circumstances of migrants in Paris, and her experimental work with new media distinguish Yalter’s pioneering approach. Her projects with the formats of video, painting, photography, and multimedia installations as well as her works in public space are part of international collections and museums.
The Talk is in englisch language.
The “Talks about Art in Public Space” take place in cooperation with Public Art Lower Austria.
