Artist Talk: Chloe Dewe Mathews at the Tate Modern

Thursday, November 15

7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Tate Modern Bankside London, UK

Join Chloe Dewe Mathews at the Tate Modern as she presents her new monograph in conversation with curator Sarah Allen. Caspian: The Elements is Chloe Dewe Mathews’s record of five years spent roaming the borderlands of the Caspian Sea. In a resource-rich region roiled by contested geopolitics, Dewe Mathews found that elemental materials like oil, rock, and uranium are central to the mystical, practical, artistic, religious, and therapeutic aspects of daily life. With essays by Morad Montazami, Sean O’Hagan, and Arnold van Bruggen, Caspian: The Elements offers a series of powerful visual narratives that explore the deep links between the peoples of the Caspian and their enigmatic and coveted landscapes. Caspian: The Elements is co-published by Aperture and Peabody Museum Press.

£5 entry cost is redeemable against a copy of Caspian: The Elements when ticket is presented at the sales desk.
