About

Born in the 1960s in England, artists Jeremy Deller and Liam Gillick have engaged the economic, cultural, and political conditions of the last two decades in markedly different ways. The two join MCA Curator Dominic Molon for a conversation about their concurrent exhibitions at the MCA, their artistic strategies, and the ideas that inform their work.
