12.30pm - Daata Editions: Keren Cytter (artist) in conversation with Andrew Goldstein (Artspace) and David Gryn (Daata Editions)

Known for her filmic artworks that pick apart genre conventions and other cinematic tropes with sly, dry wit, Keren Cytter continually tests the boundaries of her chosen medium. Now, the New York-based artist is once again venturing into new terrain with her new video ‘Terrorist of Love’, co-commissioned by Artspace and Daata Editions and premiered for free distribution at the fair and online. To unpack some of the ideas behind the very humorous piece, Artspace editor-in-chief Andrew M. Goldstein will sit down with Cytter to discuss the multilayered work. 

1.30pm - FT Arts: In conversation with Chinese artist Cai Guo-Qiang

Chinese artist Cai Guo-Quaing discusses his work Sky Ladder which was the subject of a documentary by Kevin Macdonald. 

2.30pm - DB Artmag: A Global Conversation with Sarnath Banerjee

Following on from his article ‘A Global Conversation’ in the Frieze Week Magazine, Shanay Jhaveri will interview artist Sarnath Banerjee about the artworks he has been commissioned to produce for Deutsche Bank. The project, consisting of almost 80 artworks, is entitled ‘An Encounter with Thomas Browne and Other Commonplace Utopia’. The works draw on renga, a form of ancient Japanese linked verse which flows in the manner of a conversation.  Banerjee compares his work to a long conversation in a tea shop “There is no agenda. Conversations are very important. Human beings evolved through dialogue that is how they moved to the next step intellectually.    

3.30pm - ArtReview: Artist talk with Siobhán Hapaska

Join Siobhán Hapaska in conversation with ArtReview's Helen Sumpter on what art means and how it makes you feel; certainty versus absurdity; and the ways life as an artist in London has changed since the early 1990s. ​Born in Belfast, Northern Ireland, Siobhán Hapaska graduated from Goldsmiths in ​London in 1992, hot on the heels of the YBA generation, and has lived and worked in the city ever since. ​She exhibits internationally and her work is held in collections​ including the Hirshhorn, Washington, DC, Moderna Museet, Stockholm, and Tate. 

4.30pm - CURA.: Jon Rafman (artist) in conversation

On the occasion of the launch of CURA. issue 23, featuring a cover by Jon Rafman and a main essay on his work, the artist and curator Maitreyi Maheshwari, Programme Director at Zabludowicz Collection, will talk about the video and its online first presentation.

Erysichthon (2015), by Jon Rafman, is the final element in a trilogy of videos including Still Life (Betamale) (2013) and Mainsqueeze (2014). Like the other videos of the series, it comprises found images from the web, user-created contents and video clips. These examples of subcultures are investigated through the theme of devouring and ingesting, used as a metaphor for our culture of consumption and our relationship to the virtual world. 

5.30pm - Solar: Igor Ramirez, Editor-in-Chief, in conversation with contemporary artist José Dávila.

Solar released a limited edition of ceramic tiles created by Dávila, titled Carelessly Drawn Horse, for which he draws artistic references from different periods in time, creating a palimpsest that is not only a fractal of the history of art but also a continuation of it. The artist’s method will ignite a discussion in which the prevailing theme of Solar's second issue, the importance of idols, will take shape in their influence through Davila's career. How does the idea of our own idols shape the path we take in our lives and careers? How does one become an idol himself?  How do we pay our respect to our idols through our work/art?
