Master of Reality: Talks on Mike Nelson’s Exhibition

24 Mar 2023 3-6.30pm

Hayward Gallery
London SE1 8XX


In an afternoon of talks, speakers from art history, architecture, film studies and neuroscience unpack themes raised in Mike Nelson: Extinction Beckons.

The day is organised in collaboration with the Centre for Practice Research in the Arts of Kingston University, London.

Mike Nelson (b. 1967, lives and works in London) creates psychologically charged and atmospheric installations that take viewers on enthralling journeys into fictional worlds that eerily echo our own.

Nelson represented Great Britain at the 54th Venice Biennale in 2011 and has shown in leading galleries around the world.

He has also been featured in numerous international exhibitions, including the 13th Biennale of Sydney, the eighth Istanbul Biennial and the 13th Lyon Biennale.
