In conversation: Cornelia Parker with MCA Chief Curator Rachel Kent
Level 6 Harbourside Room, 1.30-2.45pm 

Hear directly from acclaimed British artist Cornelia Parker in this much-anticipated conversation event.

2019/2020 Sydney International Art Series artist Cornelia Parker will discuss her well-known style of transforming everyday objects into unexpected, haunting scenarios. The artist’s process involves exploding, shooting and rearranging common objects into often surprising pieces of art.

Listen as the artist reflects on over 30 years of her creative process and works, with MCA Chief Curator Rachel Kent. The conversation between artist and curator will examine firsthand Parker’s unusual process and love of transformation and satire.

This event is presented in conjunction with the exhibition Cornelia Parker (8 November 2019 – 16 February 2020) at the MCA.
