Labor Class and the Critic’s Panel
Labor ClassWhat is involved in making a Koons sculpture? Or building six 30 foot tall Louise Bourgeois spiders? If you are interested in seeing and hearing how sculpture from these and many other established artists is made come to Labor class presented by Bernard Klevickas on Friday at 4 pm. If you work with or for another artist, please come and share your experience too.
From 2000 to 2005 Mr. Klevickas worked as a metal fabricator at an art foundry which constructed sculpture for Jeff Koons, Louise Bourgeois, Carroll Dunham, Rona Pondick, Anish Kapoor, Tom Otterness, Charles Ray, Eric Fischl, Kiki Smith, Frank Stella, Magdalena Abakanowicz, and others. Labor class will be an opportunity to hear and see what life is like from a worker's perspective.
The Critic's PanelPlease join Martha Schweneder, Jonathan T.D. Neil, Thomas Micchelli, and Christian Viveros-Faune tonight at 6pm to discuss the role of art criticism in relation to the art market. We hope our central thesis "Art is luxury commodity for the wealthy that limits access to ownership, understanding, and participation..." will function more as a question and a departure point for our participating critics.
