1. The Graduate Student Association of the Institute of Fine Arts invites artists to discuss their work. Begun in 1983, these talks are now funded by a generous gift in memory of late IFA Professor Kirk Varnedoe, who inspired the series.

  4. Gabriel Orozco poetically addresses our relationship to common objects, creating a metaphor for our contemporary condition of transience through both time and place. His appropriation and subsequent alteration of familiar objects such as a ping pong table, an airplane ticket, or a denomination of currency require the viewer to re-examine everyday interactions and see these objects as symbols of our social exchanges and geographical mobility. While Ping Pond Table is formed from a number of predetermined elements, both its meaning and its spatial organization are subject to unpredictable and indefinite variation when literally put into play by the viewer/participant.

  5. The Renaissance Society, Lismore Castle Arts, C. Waterford, Ireland, and the 2010 Glasgow International Festival of Visual Art, in collaboration with Van Abbemuseum, co-commissioned Irish artist Gerard Byrne (b. 1969) to create this new multi-channel film installation titled A thing is a hole in a thing it is not. As this title--a quotation of Carl Andre's famous dictum--suggests, Byrne's attention here will be on the historical reception of Minimalism as a movement, a history that is resonant within the context of The Society's early engagement with that movement's artists.
