I'll be joining an amazing group of artists for EFA Project Space's New York City Arts Workers Studio Residency. Launched by EFA Project Space in August 2010, the Studio Residency for New York City Arts Workers is the only residency of its kind, providing an opportunity for accomplished art professionals (administrators, curators, directors), who are artists in their own right, the space and encouragement to focus on their studio practice.

 

I will have work in this show…

The Artist-Citizen, Advocating Change
Tuesday, March 23, 6:30 pm

The role of artists needs to be repositioned as essential to our culture and society. How can artists determine how to maneuver within the existing societal structure to achieve reliable, long lasting support both politically and socially. How can artists realize that individuals can hone power to implement change? What are the resources that artists may utilize to understand the rights and opportunities that already exist? What are some examples of artists who have advocated for more support and have succeeded? What are steps artists can take to achieve greater agency for themselves?

Moderated by Zeferey Throwell.

 

But Does it Work?
Art, Activism and the Interventionist’s Gesture

Tuesday, February 24, 6:30 pm
A Conversation between Joseph DeLappe, Stephen Duncombe, and Steve Lambert

Artists/activists Joseph DeLappe and Steve Lambert join writer/activist/media scholar Stephen Duncombe to discuss what happens when artists interfere with existing structures of media in order to manipulate and use them as vehicles for political and social commentary. How do these forms of intervention compare to straight-forward art activism, and what are these artists hoping to achieve? How does one even measure success when utopia is the goal? The talk will focus on the artists’ works “dead-in-iraq”, “iraqimemorial.org” and the recent faux New York Times “Special Edition” announcing the end of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.
