Wednesday, January 16th 2013, 7.30pm.
Hunter MFA building, Second floor, 450 W 41st. St, NYC, NY 10036
A Panel discussion moderated by Anthony Huberman & Daniel Bozhkov
With Nicolas Bourriaud, Simon Critchley & David Levi Strauss
This panel brings together several prominent critics and educators for a discussion. How do current artistic, curatorial and educational models re-examine the ways art and education could function together? Have the conditions that once allowed for risk and experimentation within the temporary autonomous zone of the educational institution been changed? What does risk look like now? How can thinkers, artists and curators create these conditions in and outside the institution? The conversation will expand upon the existing structures, the utopian models, and the actual possibilities. Our hope is to touch upon the broader issues of how art can or should be taught, and what the artist can teach given the conditions of the world today.
