A Conversation with Shezad Dawood
on the work of the artist, in Wiels / BE
Artist Shezad Dawood talks about his new commission included in Risquons-Tout, his self-confessed obsession with architecture and his focus on the legacies of non-western Modernism. He speaks with Aslı Çiçek, about the practice of designing exhibitions, exploring how research can be transformed into art.
This conversation will take place online, moderated by WIELS senior curator Zoë Gray.
