On Thursday 26th of October, we welcome artist Marcus Coates to the Van Eyck, at 17:30 he will give a public talk in the auditorium. You're very welcome to join us!
Marcus Coates lives and works in London. His work aims to question the relational frameworks we use to define our position as a species amongst others. Exploring positions of alterity – he devises processes to explore the pragmatism and insight that empathetic perspectives and imagined realities can offer. He explicitly addresses a need to create functional and inclusive languages where conventional strategies of understanding and rationalisation prove inadequate.
