» Liam Gillick phone interview with Lab director Adam Lerner
For Weekend in So Show, Liam Gillick created a stage-like setting, constructed within The Lab's galleries, that served as the center of a multi-media environment incorporating text, videos, and other elements conceived by the artist during his residency at The Lab. Building on a history of working collaboratively with other individuals and institutions, Gillick's work for The Lab was developed through an open-ended collaborative process. Inspired by the idea of a Laboratory of Art and Ideas, Gillick literally used The Lab's spaces as a creative laboratory, generating much of the artwork on site, while working in collaboration with a group of artists from the Rocky Mountain College of Art and Design.
Liam Gillick is known internationally for his work as an artist, writer, theoretician, and architect, and for his multidisciplinary collaborations with other artists. His many international solo exhibitions have included presentations at the Institute of Contemporary Arts, London; Baltimore Museum of Art; Palais de Tokyo, Paris; the Museum of Modern Art, New York; and Tate Britain, London, among many others. In 2002 he was short-listed for the prestigious Turner Prize, awarded annually to a British visual artist under 50. Gillick lives and works in London and New York.
