Ragnar Kjartansson: Artist's Talk

A rare opportunity to see the internationally acclaimed artist talk about his work, followed by Q&A.

Last seen in London at his Barbican show in 2016, the Icelandic artist will discuss a body of work including painting, sculpture and video, with extracts from pieces such as the nine-screen installation ‘The Visitors’, ‘Bliss’ - a durational performance of the final aria from Mozart’s Marriage of Figaro, and Kjartansson’s ballet 'No Tomorrow' which premiered in Reykjavik and was performed for three days only at the Royal Festival Hall this summer.
A visual artist often described as a polymath, known for staging scenes that bring together dancers, performers and musicians, immersing viewers in spell-binding tableaux and repetitive refrain, Kjartansson’s acute attention to emotion gives his work the intensity of a most contemporary epic.
