Look Who's Talking: Gabriel Kuri

About this event

Gabriel Kuri will guide you through the large selection of his works on show at WIELS and delve into the sorting principles at the heart of his practice.

Gabriel Kuri creates sculptures that embody questions of value through dynamic, hybrid and playful forms. His research gravitates around a set of recurrent themes: flows of information, notions of commercial and cultural value, consumerism, as well as material and its poetic (mis)use.
