This fall, the Public Art Fund Talks series presents three artists who all transform the conventional lecture into a unique work of art. These hybrid performance-lectures provide a window into each artist's practice and present viewers with a new way of experiencing their art. Using live video and dialogue, Pawel Althamer creates a live sculpture workshop with the audience, extending the collaborative approach that has defined much of his work.

Born in 1967 in Warsaw, Poland, Pawel Althamer graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts, Warsaw, where he studied in the Department of Sculpture. In 2004, he received the Vincent van Gogh Biennial Award from the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam. His recent solo exhibitions include Pawel Althamer und Andere, Secession, Vienna (2009); One of Many, Fondazione Nicola Trussardi, Milan (2007); Black Market, neugerriemschneider, Berlin (2007); and Au Centre Pompidou, Espace 315, Centre Pompidou, Paris (2006). Recent group exhibitions include 8th Gwangju Biennale, 10,000 Lives, Gwangju (2010); The Science of Imagination, Ludwig Museum, Budapest (2010); Skin Fruit: Selections from the Dakis Joannou Collection, New Museum of Contemporary Art, New York (2010); and The Fifth Floor: Ideas Taking Spaces, Tate Liverpool, Liverpool (2008).
