Conversation | Amalia Ulman and Dr. Fredric Brandt
Weds | 7pm
Exploring the relationship between identity, consumerism, and beauty, artist Amalia Ulman will discuss the idea of bodies as objects and investments with world-renowned cosmetic dermatologist Dr. Fredric Brandt.
Amalia Ulman (1989, Argentina) lives and works between London, UK and Gijón, Spain. Her work analyses social stratification, cultural capital, class imitation and seduction. Her aim is to scrutinize matters such as hierarchies, power relations, charity and empathy.
Dr. Fredric Brandt is a physician, researcher, lecturer, author, radio host, and pioneering cosmetic dermatologist. He is also an avid contemporary art collector, and has recently been described by The New York Times as “the designated magician responsible for keeping faces both well known and otherwise in states of extraordinary preservation.”
