ARTIST + ARTIST TALK: TORBEN RIBE IN CONVERSATION WITH LASSE SCHMIDT HANSEN

Thursday 24 Sep 5:00am 6:30am

On the occasion of Torben Ribe’s exhibition OUTLET, he has invited his friend and artist colleague Lasse Schmidt Hansen to discuss their individual practices and their thematic overlaps.

Two common points of interest for the Ribe and Hansen are the notion of ambivalent aesthetics and personal taste. In a casual artist-to-artist sofa conversation, the two artists will exchange thoughts and considerations on how they see connections between materials, class, and economy, by drawing threads not just their own art, but even more so to the socio-political reality that surrounds them in their daily life and practice. Among other things, they will talk about trashy-minimalism, bootleg abstraction, sawdust wallpaper, outlets and the beauty of the non-spectacular.
