On 12 October, 2017 the National Gallery Australia celebrated 35 years with Marc Quinn as its "Birthday Lecture" keynote speaker. In conversation with Kirsten Paisley, NGA Deputy Director the two discussed Quinn's practice and artistic examination of the body. With a focus on Quinn's iconic self-portrait Self, 2011, which is on view at the Museum's Hyper Real exhibition, the conversation explored the unique lens through which Self responds to the body, identity and the hyperrealism as an artform.
