IN INGLESE - The Guggenheim Museum Bilbao presents the fifth video of its Insights series

The Guggenheim Museum Bilbao presents the fifth video of its Insights series with a conversation between artist Esther Ferrer and curator Lekha Hilleman Waitoller

The Guggenheim Museum Bilbao presents today the fifth video in the digital initiative #GuggenheimBilbaoInsights, a series of videos organized by the Curatorial Department of the Museum where curators talk with artists whose work is represented in the Museum Collection.

On this occasion, the keys to the oeuvre of acclaimed artist Esther Ferrer will be discussed through an analysis of her career, in which performance, the body, and the passage of time are fundamental means of expression

The conversation between Ferrer and our curator Lekha Hileman takes place at the artist’s studio in Paris and at the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao, respectively. Ferrer discusses her involvement in the ZAJ collective, her beginnings in performance art, and the influence of feminism in her artistic and personal life. During this dialogue, the artist talks about her interest in prime numbers and the use of the chair as source of inspiration in the creation of her artwork.

The video is available on the Museum website and social media: YouTube, Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter.

The schedule of the next upcoming video is:

April 2021: Peio Irazu and Lucía Agirre
