Commission Impossible: Michael Morris	in Conversation

Join Michael Morris (Founder of Artangel) in conversation with Professor Kate Pullinger (Bath Spa University) as they discuss the extraordinary commissioning and producing work of Artangel, the London-based powerhouse which has been supporting artists to create site-specific installations and events since 1985.

Described as ‘the guardians of modern art’, Artangel’s commissions range from Rachael Witeread’s ‘House’ (1993) to, most recently, Taryn Simon’s ‘An Occupation of Loss’ (2018), with former clients going on to win the Turner Prize and Academy Awards, and to exhibit at the Venice Biennale.
