British artist Bridget Riley poses with the Kaiser Ring of the City of Goslar after the award ceremony at the Imperial Palace in Goslar, Germany. Riley is considered one of the leading representatives of the so-called Optical Art, or Op Art, which deals with the laws of visual perception under the influence of optical illusions.

LONDON.- Ramin Bahrani, Susan Hiller, Amar Kanwar, Bridget Riley and Wolfgang Tillmans are all part of the international line-up of highly respected artists, filmmakers, curators and cultural commentators taking part in Frieze Talks 2010.

Frieze Talks is a daily programme of keynote lectures, panel debates and discussions that take place in the auditorium at Frieze Art Fair. It is presented by Frieze Foundation and programmed by the editors of frieze magazine, Jennifer Higgie, Jörg Heiser and Dan Fox.

Keynote lectures by artists Amar Kanwar and Wolfgang Tillmans will be accompanied by conversations between co-founder of legendary New York-based art collective Group Material, Julie Ault and Bart van der Heide; ‘Neo-Neo Realist’ filmmaker Ramin Bahrani and Bert Rebhandl; American London-based artist Susan Hiller and John Welchman; and artist Bridget Riley with Michael Bracewell.

Panel discussions led by Negar Azimi, Sam Thorne and Jan Verwoert will focus on some of the current debates surrounding contemporary art and theory. Featuring artists including Thomas Demand, Jeremy Deller and Paulina Olowska, topics will include: ‘Who Owns Images?’, a discussion on how changes in technology affect the ownership of images; ‘Reference vs Reverence’, questioning whether art that is caught in a web of historic references can be a counter-critical model; and ‘Exhibition Making as Activism: Whose Politics’, which will look at work that responds to complex social issues and political situation to consider whether art can be effective activism and vice versa. For ‘What’s So Funny?’, four artists will present their responses to the use of humour in artistic practice. Participants will be Nathaniel Mellors, Aleksandra Mir, Roee Rosen and Olav Westphalen.

Also presented will be a panel discussion,The Medium is the Message, by artist Jeffrey Vallance. A Frieze Projects commission, the panel will feature five mediums each channeling the spirits of famous dead artists. The artists will be asked questions on the role of art in the afterworld and their opinions on the art market in the living world. The panel will be open to audience questions.

Jörg Heiser, Co- Editor of frieze magazine, commented: 'Frieze Talks has developed into a gratifying opportunity to engage with some of the best minds in art and culture; we have had great responses both from participants and audiences to the previous installments. We are looking forward to continuing that dialogue over four days of lectures, performances and discussions.'
