Fred Wilson- Artist/curator

Me and Ellie went to a lecture by artist/curator Fred Wilson on Friday...
We didn't really know what it was going to be about so it was a bit hit or miss but it turned out to be a hit- and the hit the nail on the head for both of our dissertations!
He was talking a lot about how he has worked in museums and how he has used objects from the museums and changed the way they are viewed to challenge how the viewer interprets the work, and encouraging the viewer to see past that actually 'pieces' and see things like the plynths and wall mounts as just as important as the things that are on them.
I noticed Ellie put this video on her blog and I want to copy her. (Thanks ellie!!)

I really enjoyed his voice too.
