Artist Talk | Mike Cooter: The Thousand Eyes

Sat | 5pm

Mike Cooter Thousand Eyes


Mike Cooter’s work for FADE IN: INT. ART GALLERY – DAY brings together a number of significant moments in film noir, from films such as The Maltese Falcon (1941), Cat People (1942) and Laura (1944), in which objects and artworks are accorded potent energy onscreen, appearing to compel the behavior of characters and the movement of the narrative. Please join us for this talk in which Cooter will speak about his long-term artistic research into the structural agency of objects, and the relationship between the artwork and the MacGuffin.

Please RSVP to
Mike Cooter is currently post-producing a six-part radio drama about an object, Dingus, to be released in 2016, and recently completed a large-scale installation for the 31st Biennial of Graphic Arts (Ljubljana, 2015). In addition to the exhibition at Swiss Institute he will present new work in Another Reality: After Lina Bo Bardi, this summer at Stroom Den Haag (NL).
