1. Institutions by Artists - Debate 02 : Should Artists Professionalize?


    from Allison Collins Added 946 7 2

    Team A (for): Julia Bryan-Wilson Jeff Derksen Candice Hopkins Team B (against): Tania Bruguera Sam Gould Claire Tancons As artists have taken on the creation of artist-run organizations or have turned themselves or their practices into institutions, their roles have expanded, taking on the work of curator, administrator, critic, educator, publicist, and so forth. While the polyvalence of contemporary artists has enriched institutions with resources and support, any reciprocity remains subject to debate. The professionalization of the artist, arising as a consequence of artist-run institution building and the blurring of professional roles inherent in such activity, may limit artistic potential in that artists take on increased administrative and curatorial responsibilities, among others, at the opportunity cost of artistic production. In the second debate of the convention, presenters will deliberate on the many roles of the contemporary artist, making the case for and against his or her professionalization.

    • Afterword - PBA #23


      from Sam Gould Added 36 0 0

      Due to extremely low light levels, we decided to have David Senior give an afterward to his PBA session: an overview of his recent MoMA exhibit Access to Tools - Publications from the Whole Earth Catalog, the research that went into it, the various publications featured, and the publics that materialized as a result of those publications coming out into the world. He and Sam visit a (somewhat) quiet neighborhood cafe and talked through the nuts and bolts of that nights session. That said, the light here is also very loooooooow, despite that fact that David stooped down to have his face closer to the candles on the table. We suggest you watch this video in the dark. It looks really nice that way. Kind of like Col. Kurtz / Marlon Brando in the final scenes of Apocalypse Now.

              It was interesting to consider the many functions, possible uses, and limitations inherent within A/AA. Here, with some leftover Chalk Board spray paint donated by Todd Pleasants, Sam begins the first section of exterior chalk-wall for the schoolhouse.
