Filmmaker and artist Steve McQueen, recipient of both the Academy Award and Turner Prize, will be in conversation with Hamza Walker, Director of LAXART and former curator at the Renaissance Society. McQueen’s Ashes, currently on view at the ICA, is a freestanding video installation that shows a young carefree fisherman and his unexpected fate. McQueen’s upcoming film Widows will be released next fall.
Steve McQueen’s Ashes is a gift of Tristin and Martin Mannion.
Steve McQueen: Ashes is organized by Dan Byers with Jeffrey De Blois, Curatorial Associate.
