Guest lecture for the the MFA Art Practice program at the School of Visual Arts in New York on artistic strategies within the practice of curation and how to operate as an art institution on the boundary between art and life.
June 24th in New York.
Join us for a guest lecture about the value of undisturbed solitude, our projects, and the consistent desire to rethink the art institution. We’ll discuss why we like established artist just as much as artists with zero critical acclaim, why we think sometimes we have to pay attention to the absence of everything, and finally, why it all ends where it started—in the present.
November 17th in New York.
We playfully confound two typically distinct spaces—the gallery & the domestic home—as artists present their work in the households of participating NY residents. In each dwelling, an installation area is designated, while the existing items (i.e. sofas, coffee tables, books, and personal objects) are moved and reinstalled in a gallery space.
With the artworks thus displaced, gallery visitors must directly contact the private hosts, whose phone numbers are available alongside their displayed belongings.
