Event description

Steve McQueen will be joined by Artangel Co-Director James Lingwood to discuss the artist’s work with Artangel over the years.

Artist and director Steve McQueen first collaborated with Artangel on Caribs’ Leap / Western Deep, an immersive cinematic installation that was premiered in the UK at the Lumiere Cinema in London in 2002. In 2016, McQueen installed a new sculpture – Weight – in a cell in Reading Prison as part of Artangel’s project, Inside. The collaboration continued with Year 3, which, in 2019, resulted in one of the most ambitious visual portraits of citizenship ever undertaken.

Steve McQueen is perhaps best known for his feature films Hunger, Shame, and Widows. These movies are just one element of a wide-ranging body of work in film and video which has seen McQueen win the Turner Prize in 1999, the Caméra d'Or at the Cannes Film Festival in 2008, and an Academy Award for Best Picture in 2014.
