Berlin-based artist Michael Stevenson, who will be part of the Liverpool Biennial 2014 Exhibition, will be in the city on 23 April and will give a talk about his artistic practice.

For each of his projects, Stevenson begins by embarking on elaborate research to unearth complex stories that fascinate for their formal qualities. Objects and images attendant to these stories appear as if somehow engaged in private conversation. In so doing, he draws out collective histories, illuminating the economics of transaction and exchange.

Michael Stevenson is a New Zealand artist based in Berlin. Selected solo exhibitions include A Life of Crudity, Vulgarity, and Blindness, Portikus, Frankfurt am Main, 2012; Nueva Matemática, Museo Tamayo Arte Contemporáneo, Mexico City, 2012; A Question of How Things Behave, Objectif Exhibitions, Antwerp, 2010 among others. In 2003 Stevenson represented New Zealand at the Venice Biennial. He is currently holding a full-time teaching professorship at the Akademie der Bildenden Künste in Nürnberg.

Talking Practice is a series of talks by practitioners including artists, designers, architects, curators, filmmakers and writers about their ideas and influences.
