Join artist Anthony McCall at Tate Liverpool for an insight into his artistic practice.

British-born, New York based artist Anthony McCall produces films, installations and performances that transform projected light and space into immersive, participatory experiences. Occupying a space between sculpture, cinema, drawing and performance, they invert the conventions of cinema, turning the viewer’s attention to the projector, the light beam and the surrounding space, rather than merely to an image on a flat surface.

This talk coincides with the drawing exhibition Tracing the Century: Drawing as a Catalyst for Change, which will be at Tate Liverpool from 16 November 2012 to 20 January 2013.

The exhibition provides a rare opportunity to experience Anthony McCall’s seminal film Line Describing a Cone 1973, which is part of the Tate collection.
