Exhibiting artist Jan Tichy, along with artists and curators Jason Lazarus and Faheem Majeed will have a conversation on artistic practices that deal with collecting and collections. Jan Tichy works at the intersection of video, sculpture, architecture, sound and photography; many of his works combine these elements. Several of Tichy’s projects, like the exhibition 1979:1 —2012:21: Jan Tichy Works with the MoCP Collection, involve collaborations with museums including the Wadsworth Atheneum, Hartford CT; and the Spertus Institute of Jewish Studies, Chicago, where Tichy engages and creates works inspired by the institutions’ collections, histories, and practices.
Held at the Museum of Contemporary Photography, November 13, 2012
In conjunction with the exhibition "1979:1 —2012:21: Jan Tichy Works with the MoCP Collection."
