Conversation and Livestream | Tobias Spichtig with Caroline Busta and Lil Internet
Wed | 2:30PM
On the occasion of Tobias Spichtig’s solo exhibition Good OK Great Fantastic Perfect Grand Thank You, please join SI for a livestreamed conversation between the artist and New Models founders Caroline Busta and Lil Internet. Broadcasting live from Berlin, the discussion will expand upon Spichtig’s exhibition at SI and consider the artist’s interest in icons, ornamentation, adornment and emptiness. At Swiss Institute, a monitor displaying the livestream will be stationed on one of the jewelry cases that populate the gallery. A webcam will capture live footage of the exhibition, giving those who visit a chance to participate in person.
To view the livestream, please visit youtube.com/newmodelstv.
