Various Responses is an afternoon of talks and conversations coinciding with the finissage of Mutlu Çerkez: 1988–2065. The program includes presentations from artists, academics, curators and writers - including the artist’s contemporaries - which consider chronology, ontology, re-making and self-referencing in relation to Çerkez’s practice and contemporary art. The program is an opportunity to consider the artist’s complex body of conceptual work, the contexts within which he worked and to celebrate Çerkez’s legacy and influence.
