Artist Talks: Wolfgang Tillmans

The next event in the Fondation Beyeler’s new programme, co-hosted by UBS


Thursday 7 September, 6.30pm

Artist Talks, the new programme of the Fondation Beyeler, co-hosted by UBS, continues with the acclaimed artist Wolfgang Tillmans. Tillmans will be speaking about his works in conjunction with his exhibition at the Fondation Beyeler. Tillmans first made a name for himself in the early 1990s with iconic photographs that captured the mood of an entire generation. He soon expanded his focus, experimenting with the means of photography, reinventing the traditional genres of portraiture, still life and landscape while broadening the possibilities of abstraction. for more details and to book tickets see www.fondationbeyeler.ch

Ahead of the talk, read Martin Herbert’s interview with Tillmans, from the April 2013 issue of ArtReview
