Nolan Oswald Dennis (SMACT ’18)
Thursday, April 7
Virtual Event – Please join here.
In this talk Nolan Oswald Dennis will reflect on the twin notions of relation and irrelation as conceptual strategies, political coordinates, contingent aesthetics, and conditions in his practice. He will try to outline a series of commitments and track their implications through various public and secret articulations sometimes called artworks, other times not. Underlying this reflection is an interest in the im/possibility of tools, master’s and dismantlement.
Nolan Oswald Dennis is an interdisciplinary artist. Their practice explores the material and metaphysical conditions of decolonization, questioning the politics of space (and time) through a system-specific, rather than site-specific approach. They hold a bachelor’s degree in architecture from the University of the Witwatersrand (Wits) and a Masters of Science in Art, Culture, and Technology from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).
