About

Haroon Mirza discusses his varied and often collaborative practice, which draws on a range of disciplines and influences from particle physics to mysticism and ethnobotany.

Haroon Mirza (b. 1977, London, UK) is a London based artist. He has had recent solo exhibitions at Ikon, Birmingham, UK (2018); Asian Art Museum, San Francisco, CA, USA (2018); Nikolaj Kunsthal, Copenhagen, Denmark (2018); and Zabludowicz Collection, London (2017). His work was included in the 54th Venice Biennale, Italy (2011), where he was awarded the Silver Lion. He was recently awarded the COLLIDE International Award in 2017, which led to a two-month residency at CERN, Switzerland in 2018. In the same year, Mirza unveiled a sculpture commissioned by Ballroom Marfa, Texas, which will remain in the landscape for five years.

This talk is part of the Testing Ground: Master Class programme, a week long intensive with leading international artists sharing their expertise with a small group of emerging artists from around the country. Led by artist Doug Fishbone, this year's artists are: Janice Kerbel, Haroon Mirza, Keith Piper and Amie Siegel. Each of the artists, in addition to working with the emerging artists, will present a free evening lecture to the public about their work.
