Haus der Kunst: Artist Talk
In just a few years, Oscar Murillo (*1986 in La Paila / Colombia) has developed one of the most exciting positions in contemporary art. Primarily based in painting, he radically transcends this framework by integrating videos, drawings, printing techniques, sculpture, as well as elements of installation and performance art, into his work, thereby conveying an immediate and physical quality.
The conversation provides insights into the historical, economic and social fields of association of Murillo’s art and introduces the artist’s varied work processes and collaborative projects.
