Gill Nicol – Contemporary Art. Why Bother?

[youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DIwRtT1nR5M]

What does art mean to you? Is it inspiring or infuriating? If you’re the type of person who wonders how to relate to a black bin bag on the floor of a gallery then Gill Nicol understands your feelings. In her talk at Ignite Bristol considers why we visit galleries and suggests that the responses artists are aiming for to their art are more varied than we might sometimes believe.

For Gill to address this question at this event was timely – our hosts at Spike Island had opened the gallery for our guests to enjoy before and after the talks.
