Joseph Kosuth, in “Art and Its Public” defined an artist community as “...a community of artists who collectively, through individual effort, define what is meaningful at a particular historical moment concretely within the practice of their activity.” And comedian Stephen Fry, while viciously ripping into a head of lettuce, asks why making a salad (with no other motive other than love!) (and a decent desire!) is so frustratingly futile. We have invited a number of artists to address the question: is there such a thing as an artist community? Do they feel a part of one? What constitutes it? What would it mean to be able to collectively define meaning today, in a diverse and ever-changing art world? MATERIAL, an artist-run journal publishing and supporting the artist’s voice, in collaboration with Insert Press, has collected the responses to this question and created a publication of these texts that begin to describe our ‘particular moment.’ October 3, at 1pm - Panel discussion around the topic of community and a launch of the publication.
Panel members include: Mathew Timmons, Marcus Civin, Elana Mann, Adam Overton, Dorit Cypis, Julie Orser, Melanie Nakaue, Ginny Cook & Kim Schoen
