The Lost Lectures

Ed Fornieles

Dwelling somewhere between performance, satire and contemporary art, Ed Fornieles has been shrugging off categorization at galleries across the globe. He shot to notoriety after his debut London exhibition, which involved mounting an actual house party in a Hackney warehouse and escorting stiff-necked art journalists through mounds of inebriated young bodies. His mediums are many (drawing on everything from oil on canvas to fully functional hot tubs) and his exhibitions are characteristically surreal; one of the few cultural experiences where visitors emerge with both a broader horizon as well as a rampant hangover. Across his work, he’s explored in the interplay between fantasy and identity and he will be discussing this theme with us on the evening.
