This talk by guest speaker, Martin Herbert, is the second in the School of Art Friday Lecture series 2016 - 2017.
Martin Herbert is a writer and critic based in Berlin. He is the author of Mark Wallinger (Thames & Hudson, 2011), The Uncertainty Principle (Sternberg Press, 2014) and Tell Them I Said No (Sternberg Press, 2016).
Martin’s lecture entitled 'Uncertain', 'Difficult', and Other Compliments revolves around the uses (and abuses) of doubt and ambiguity in recent art. He will discuss notions of uncertainty, to consider the necessity of difficulty within artistic practice, particularly with regard to changes in the art market and the culture of exhibiting.
