Maria Pask in conversation ‘ Lost Horizon’
The artist will introduce some of her recent projects and focus on the diverse range of interests that form the basis of her art. Maria Pask’s art takes place primarily in projects that focus on processes and include people from a wide variety of social groups. She will reflect on how subject matter becomes lost in a process-based performative practice of open formats and social interactions. On her work at Munster last year, see sculpture projects 07 on www.beautifulcity.de and for a range of projects see the link.

I studied in the UK (Edinburgh and London) and I have worked in the UK, the USA, and in Europe, where I am now at the University of Amsterdam. Following my PhD I have written extensively on art in Britain in the nineteenth and early twentieth century with two books, Painting Women (1994) and Beyond the Frame: Feminism and Visual Culture (2000) along with exhibitions such as ‘The Edwardian Era’ (co-curated 1987).
