Whitechapel Gallery is hosting Douglas Coupland: In Conversation with the Canadian author and artist at their London art space on Saturday September 27.
The so-called contemporary zeitgeist artist joins Whitechapel Gallery curator Omar Kholeif for conversation about language, cultural identity and living in the thick of constant media and technology.
The discussion hints on some themes explored in Coupland’s earlier writing – including the books Generation X, Microserf, and Life After God – and seems echoed in most of his visual work, from the pixelated ‘Welcome to the 21st Century‘ to the dripping computer colour-heads in ‘Pop-Heads‘.
