Feedback Series | Luis Jacob
Luis Jacob’s diverse practice addresses social interaction and the subjectivity of aesthetic experience. Realized as painting, video, installation, photography and actions in the public sphere, Jacob’s work invites a collision of meaning systems that destabilize conventions of viewing and open up possibilities for engagement and the creation of knowledge. He has achieved an international reputation – particularly since his participation in documenta12. Several significant solo exhibitions include: Kunstverin Hamburg; Darling Foundry, Montréal; MoCCA, Toronto; and Kunsthalle Lingen and group exhibitions at the Taipei Biennial (2012); Witte de With, Rotterdam (2012); Generali Foundation, Vienna (2011); Guggenheim Museum, New York (2010); Contemporary Art Museum, Houston (2010); ICA, Philadelphia (2009); MuHKA, Antwerp (2008); Barbican Art Gallery, London (2008); and The Power Plant Contemporary Art Gallery, Toronto (2008). His work is found in the permanent collections throughout Canada and around the world. In this talk Luis Jacob responds to Aurélien Froment’s Fröbel Fröbeled through discussing his own practice.
The Feedback Series invites cultural and critical producers to present thoughts and ideas rooted in their own interests and practices and invites audiences to join in the conversations that will explore relevant contemporary issues, theories, ideas and culture.
