Nicolás Paris: what connects us - Artist Talk

Saturday 1 June
2pm - 3pm

Artist in Residence Nicolás Paris leads a walk through his exhibition and a conversation on nature and learning

The term ‘peripatetic’ – meaning ‘one who walks from place to place’ – originates with the philosopher Aristotle who is said to have lectured while walking in the Lyceum of ancient Athens. Walking with the artist through his exhibition, the gallery becomes a classroom, a peripatetic school without academic objective, a space where it is possible to find new ways of being together.

Artist Nicolás Paris brings together his architectural education and his teaching experience to incorporate elements of collaboration, dialogue and exchange in his work. The gallery serves as a platform for ephemeral, experimental learning experiences, including public conversations, workshops and events. Paris will alter and rearrange different elements of the exhibition to replicate and echo the flow of ideas that took place.
