Janice Kerbel discusses her explorations into the recurring theme of communication (and sometimes its absence), working across print, performance, light and most recently sound.

Janice Kerbel (b. 1969, Toronto, Canada) is a London based artist and currently Professor at Goldsmiths College. Her recent group and solo exhibitions include Liverpool Biennial (2018); Contemporary Art Gallery, Vancouver, Canada (2016); MoMA, New York (2013); The Arts Club, Chicago (2012); Walter Phillips Gallery, Banff Centre, Canada (2012); Badischer Kunstverein, Karlsruhe, Germany (2011); Chisenhale Gallery, London (2011); and Tate Britain, London (2010). She was nominated for the Turner Prize in 2015 and was a Sobey Art Award finalist in 2006.

This talk is part of the Testing Ground: Master Class programme, a week long intensive with leading international artists sharing their expertise with a small group of emerging artists from around the country. Led by artist Doug Fishbone, this year's artists are: Janice Kerbel, Haroon Mirza, Keith Piper and Amie Siegel. Each of the artists, in addition to working with the emerging artists, will present a free evening lecture to the public about their work.
