Conference: Out Of Alternative
Artist Space : Books & Talks
Presented by Common Practice New York and CCS Bard, a symposium on the role of small-scale arts organizations in New York City, hosted by Artists Space Books & Talks. Participants include: Rhea Anastas, Katherine Brewer Ball, David Joselit, Ralph Lemon, Stephen Levin, Park MacArthur, Nadja Millner-Larsen, and Andrea Fraser and Lise Soskolne for Working Artists and the Greater Economy (W.A.G.E.).With additional presentations and support from CCS Bard students Sabrina Blaichman, Neringa Cerniauskaite, Andrew Kachel, Clara Lopez, Cloé Perrone, and Carla Acevedo-Yates.
Out of Alternatives, the first public initiative by CPNY, will examine the ways in which small-scale organizations are perceived and understood by audiences, artists, and funders; identify the challenges of operating in today’s climate; and revive discussions of the obstacles and inequalities which have persisted since the rise of the alternative space. Out of Alternatives will further a partnership between CPNY and CCS Bard that began in the fall of 2013 with a series of invitational roundtables, site visits and discussions. This partnership will continue with the production of a publication that will include transcripts from these events alongside additional essays and artistic contributions.
