Marcia Kure: Introduction lecture and artist talk

The Royal Institute of Art is proud to announce that Marcia Kure will join the Institute as Guest Professor in February. The course, Pushing Boundaries: New Forms of Sculptures, will explore sculpture through its component parts. By examining individual aspects, fragments or materials, the students, within the course, will try to understand what defines sculpture and attempt to expand the boundaries of what sculpture can be.

Marcia Kure: ”In a world where we are asked to constantly perform identity, I am trying to create a liminal space, somewhere between boundaries through my work. The word 'utopia' comes from the Greek ou-topos meaning 'no place' or 'nowhere', which is also close to eu-topos which means a good place. My work mines this no- place, imaginary worlds of fantasy and make-believe.”

Trained at the University of Nigeria, she is an alumna of Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture. In addition to one-person exhibitions in Nigeria, Germany, the Netherlands, England and the USA, her work was shown at La Triennial, Paris (2013), International Biennial of Contemporary Art, Seville (2006), and Sharjah International Biennale (2005). During May 5th to November 3rd, Marcia will take part in the exhibition Not a Single Story at Wanås Konst.

The artist talk will be held in House 28 at the Royal Institute of Art, on February 14 at 4 pm.
