Artist in Conversation: Marc Quinn
| National Portrait Gallery
Independent charity The Art Fund, in partnership with the National Portrait Gallery, present Marc Quinn, who will be talking to Tim Marlow about his innovative works including Self (2006), recently acquired for the National Portrait Gallery with help from a £100,000 grant from The Art Fund.
A self-portrait cast of artist Marc Quinnâ€™s head, Self is made from his own blood and then frozen. Fourth in a series of â€˜Blood Headsâ€™ which Quinn updates every five years to chart his own ageing, Self encapsulates the artistâ€™s fascination for science and the human form, and his daring use of diverse materials.
Mar Quinn will be interviewed by Tim Marlow, art historian, broadcaster and Director of Exhibitions at White Cube.
