This Zoom conversation was recorded as part of a virtual event held Feb. 3, 2021 and is available as part of WAM On Demand via the Weisman’s YouTube channel.

Listen in on a conversation between artist PIOTR SZYHALSKI  and artist, writer, and editor RUSS WHITE in honor of the release of Piotr Szyhalski: We Are Working All the Time! (Weisman Art Museum, 2020), a newly published survey of the artist’s work distributed by University of Minnesota Press, edited by DIANE MULLIN, senior curator at WAM.

The catalogue accompanies the exhibition Piotr Szyhalski: We Are Working All the Time! (forthcoming)which will be the first exhibition featuring works from across Szyhalski’s extraordinary career to be critically considered together. Central to this project, this catalogue includes long overdue new scholarship on Szyhalski’s work and some 250 images. The six texts offer reflections and thoughts from varying perspectives, making the work not only more accessible, but also placing Szyhalski in the larger, international context of contemporary art from the 1980s to today.
