  • About the artist
    Ryan Gander was born in Chester and studied at Manchester Metropolitan University (1996–1999). He went on to study at the Jan Van Eyck Akademie, Maastricht, (1999–2000) and at the Rijksacademie, Amsterdam (2001–2002). His first solo exhibition was held in 2002 at the International 3 Gallery in Manchester. The following year he published the artist’s book, Appendix and held a solo exhibition at the Stedelijk Museum Bureau, Amsterdam. In 2004 he exhibited An Incomplete History of Ideas, a solo show at Cornerhouse, Manchester which featured Loose Associations (Version 2:1). This was a performance lecture reminiscent of an apparently roaming and trivial conversation amongst friends around a table in a pub. Subsequent exhibitions included shows in Cambridge, Milan and The Netherlands. In 2007 Gander was shortlisted for the Becks Futures Art prize. In summer 2014, a major show of Gander’s work, Make Every Show Like It's Your Last was held at Manchester Art Gallery, UK.
