As part of his residency, Ricardo Basbaum will teach a course within SFU’s School for the Contemporary Arts with Sabine Bitter titled, The production of the artist as collective conversation. The course will provoke a conversation amongst students through reading, writing, editing and speaking, on how the role and image of the artist is constructed. The culmination of this collective conversation will be performed live in the Audain Gallery. A recording of the performance will then be installed in the gallery for the remainder of the exhibition.

Exhibition Tour
Amy Kazymerchyk and Sabine Bitter
Saturday November 22, 1pm
Audain Gallery

Join us for a tour of the exhibition led by curator Amy Kazymerchyk and SCA Assistant Professor Sabine Bitter. Afterward, walk with us to the Satellite Gallery for a 2pm tour of The Port, led by curator Cate Rimmer, then continue to Contemporary Art Gallery for a 3pm tour of Shimabuku, led by director Nigel Prince.

Since the early 1990s, Brazilian artist Ricardo Basbaum has incited artistic encounters by inviting people to engage with and respond to systems of symbols and rules embedded in objects, scripts, diagrams, maps and games. In his projects, Basbaum quotes artistic and graphic communication tactics that are both vernacular and abstract, thereby easy to learn, interpret and memorize. Through interaction with these fluid sets of visual and linguistic terms for the production of an artwork, Basbaum seeks to collectively consider the material, social and spatial membrane between artist, contemporary art system, art object and participant.

The Production of the Artist as a Collective Conversation is an emerging exhibition that frames the gallery as a critical site of pedagogical and artistic production. Over its eight-week installation, the project will accumulate conversations, experiences, and audio, visual and print documents initiated by Basbaum with students and invested publics.

As the School for the Contemporary Arts’ Audain Visual Artist in Residence, Basbaum will also facilitate reading, discussion, writing and editing towards the presentation of a public conversation and publication that considers how the image of the artist is constructed and what the prevailing forces on artistic production are.

Basbaum lives and works in Rio de Janeiro. His work has been exhibited at Logan Center Gallery, Chicago; Secession, Vienna; The Showroom, London; Centro Galego de Arte Contemporánea, Santiago de Compostela; the 30th Bienal de São Paulo; 2012 Busan Biennale; and documenta 12. Basbaum is the author of Manual do artista-etc (Azougue, 2013) and Além da pureza visual (Zouk, 2007). He is also a Professor at the Instituto de Artes, Universidade do Estado do Rio de Janeiro, and was a visiting Professor at the University of Chicago (2013).

Abstract and fast flowing, A Dream Play replicates the disjointed shape of a dream, in which the story itself unfolds. Following Agnes, a god’s daughter, and her experience when she descends to earth to find out what it is like to be human. In doing so she witnesses both the joy and depravity of human experience. Confronted with different sorts of suffering, she is forced to realize that gods should pity humans. Her return to heaven signals an awakening from the dream-like state.

Strindberg originally wrote A Dream Play in 1901, it remains one of his most admired works and is widely regarded to have had a huge influence on later modernist drama. This adaptation is by Caryl Churchill, and was first performed at the National Theatre, London in 2005.
