Artists’ institute De Ateliers presents six inspiring talks by emerging as well as internationally established artists. All lectures start 5pm sharp.

Tuesday, October 14
David Zink Yi (b.1973, Lima, Peru), lives in Berlin.
David Zink Yi, born to a Chinese-Peruvian family, graduated as a Meisterstudent of Lothar Baumgarten in Berlin. The tensions between origin and destiny, fine art and craft, local culture and globalization, are at the center of his work. His ceramic sculptures, installations and video works were presented at solo exhibitions at Kunstverein Braunschweig (2013), Museo de Arte de Lima (2012), Neuer Berliner Kunstverein (2012), Midway Contemporary Art (Minneapolis, 2011), MAK (Vienna, 2010) and Kunsthalle St Gallen (2009). The artist is represented by Hauser & Wirth (London/New York/Zürich) and Johann König (Berlin).

Tuesday, October 21
Nina Beier (b.1975, Aarhus, Denmark), lives in Berlin and New York.
Production, display, value and ownership are some of the main subjects addressed in Nina Beier’s multimedia practice. The artist had solo exhibitions at David Roberts Art Foundation (London, 2014), Kunsthaus Glarus (2014), Objectif Exhibitions (Antwerp, 2014), Nottingham Contemporay (2013), Kunsthal Charlottenborg (Copenhagen, 2013), Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis (2010), De Vleeshal (Middelburg, 2009) and Wako Works of Art (Tokyo, 2008). The artist is represented by Metro Pictures (New York), Croy Nielsen (Berlin), Laura Bartlett Gallery (London) and Standard (Oslo).

Tuesday, October 28
Dirk Braeckman (b.1958, Eeklo, Belgium), lives in Ghent.
The large photographs by Dirk Braeckman seem to aspire to the condition of painting, their surfaces being made up of a variety of shades, demanding slow attention. The artist seeks the reality behind first appearances, his concern is with the mysteriousness of a place revealing itself slowly through time. Braeckman had solo shows in SMAK (Ghent, 2014), Galerie Fischer (Berlin, 2013), de Appel (Amsterdam, 2012), Kunsthalle (Erfurt, 2012), Louis Vuitton (Antwerp, 2012), Museum M (Leuven, 2011) and De Pont (Tilburg, 2004). The artist is represented by Zeno X (Antwerp) and Robert Miller (New York).

Tuesday, November 4
Jana Euler (b.1982, Friedberg, Germany), lives in Brussels.
In the paintings of young German artist Jana Euler, the real and the hyperreal meet. Her images can be abstract, caricature-like, photorealistic, or all at once. Jana Euler belongs to an emerging generation interrogating how social media shape the contemporary ‘self’ and how social networks determine the role of the artist. This winter, Jana Euler will have her first institutional solo show at Kunsthalle Zürich. In recent years, the artist exhibited at her representative galleries Dependance (Brussels), Neu (Berlin) and Cabinet (London).

Tuesday, November 11
Martijn Hendriks (b. 1973, Eindhoven, Netherlands), lives in Amsterdam.
The works of Martijn Hendriks reflect a hybrid reality in which boundaries between frames of reference dissolve. Constructed of high-energy lamps, cotton sweaters, digital prints, epoxy resin and credit cards, his sculptures present a world of endless mutability. Hendriks exhibited at Temporary Gallery (Cologne, 2014), WCW Gallery (Hamburg, 2013), De Vleeshal (Middelburg, 2012), Museum Boijmans van Beuningen (Rotterdam, 2012), Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art (North Adams, 2011) and the New Museum (New York, 2010). The artist is represented by Galerie Martin van Zomeren (Amsterdam).

Tuesday, November 18
David Maljkovic (1973, Rijeka, Croatia), lives in Zagreb.
David Maljkovic is known for his elegant film installations, sculptures, drawings, and photomontages, which draw on former Yugoslavia’s modernist legacy. The artist’s past one-person exhibitions include Van Abbemuseum (Eindhoven, 2012), Reina Sofía (Madrid, 2009-2010), Kunstverein (Nürnberg, 2008), Kunstverein (Hamburg, 2007), PS1 (New York, 2007), Whitechapel (London, 2007) and CAPC (Bordeaux, 2007); and his two major upcoming exhibitions will be at the Secession, Vienna, and Sculpture Center, New York. The artist is represented by Annet Gelink (Amsterdam), Metro Pictures (New York) and Sprueth/Magers (London/Berlin).
