'In Anticipation of Art: Let's talk about the future'
Artist talk by Mariusz Tarkawian
Wednesday Night Open Forum
20 February 2013, 6-7pm, Mackintosh lecture theatre

Warsaw-based Mariusz Tarkawian will discuss his current exhibition 'Anticipating the Future' in the Mackintosh Museum. The exhibition will function as a pretext for a discussion about art in the future and other topics. Mariusz will ask questions such as "Are you afraid to be an Artist?", and whether it is possible to make land art on the Moon or Mars in an attempt to discuss how artists may be exhibiting work in the future.

His exhibition, 'Anticipation of Art', where Tarkawian anticipates what kind of work well known contemporary artists may be making in the future acts like an encyclopaedia of the future. The exhibition, sited in the gallery of an art school, also unofficially acts as a reference point for students to follow up on artists with whose work they are not familiar. In a creative environment, which is nurturing future practitioners, the work showcases the way one artist has situated himself within a larger art world.

Free. All welcome
