Stephen Willats: MULTIPLE CLOTHING Message, Interaction, Exchange

Friday 21 April 2006

This discussion addresses artist Stephen Willats?s seminal project MULTIPLE CLOTHING 1965?98, which is restaged throughout the public spaces of Tate Modern beginning at 17.00. Anticipating much of the ?relational? and socially-engaged art practices of the past decade, Willats's projects centre on the relationships between individuals in society, often focusing on aspects of cognitive behaviour, the ways in which people encounter one another, and how they respond to their environment. Willats combines his rich knowledge of cybernetics, learning theory, and interactive, self-organising systems with a desire to operate in the fabric of everyday reality.

MULTIPLE CLOTHING is discussed by Willats; new media theorist Charlie Gere; Markus Müller, curator at Kunstwerke Berlin; and Bronac Ferran from Arts Council England.
