Arnolfini - est 1961

Saturday 21 September to Sunday 17 November
Victor Burgin
Victor Burgin is one of the most important figures in Conceptual Art. His work has stimulated critical debate about photography and the moving image. His early work explored relations between image and text, first using photography, then video. Today, Burgin combines both media to produce spectacular projections that examine relations between personal and social history. In addition to his art, Burgin is a widely published academic. This solo show, coinciding with Burgin’s return to Britain after 13 years in the US, is his first in a UK gallery since 1986, when he was nominated for the Turner Prize. A new work, Listen to Britain, is presented along with a selection of older works. A book published by Arnolfini and August Media will be available.
