Artist and director Steve McQueen was joined online by Artangel Co-Director James Lingwood to discuss the artist’s work with Artangel over the years.
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.
Since January 2012, the Kunsthistorisches Museum has been inviting leading figures from the world of Modern and Contemporary art to spend time at the museum and speak publicly about their responses to it. Here, Steve McQueen is in conversation with Jasper Sharp, November 2019.
