Raphaël Zarka Artist Lecture: The Geometry of Skateboarding

Performa Hub MAP
Free with reservation

Paris-based artist Raphaël Zarka is a collector of sculptural forms. The series Riding Modern Art, 2007 combined found forms of public sculpture with ‘found images’ from the sub-culture vernacular of the urban skateboarder.

For Performa 11, Zarka is presenting a two-part project materializing recent research into the “geometry of skateboarding” and its relation to modern sculpture. He will deliver a lecture at the Performa Institute on this research, which will also be translated into English for the first time and available for the audience as a free publication. A sculptural manifestation of Zarka's research forms the second part of the project.
