Between the end of May and the end of October 2017, Sehgal is presenting a series of six successive works at the Fondation Beyeler.

Coming soon: Wolfgang Tillmans 

Thursday 7 September, 6.30pm

For the next Artists Talks event, Wolfgang 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.

Artist Talks is an open, dynamic format, ranging from a classic talk by an artist to moderated conversations between artists and personalities from the artworld. With this programme Fondation Beyeler takes Artist Talks on tour for the first time. In addition to Basel, Artist Talks are planned for major international cities such as London, Seoul, Shanghai and Istanbul.
