Talk: Artists and Economies
n conjunction with the exhibition Direct Message: Art, Language, and Power, a panel of well-known artists, gallerists, and scholars consider the economies that support artistic practice from alternative social networks to fiscal sponsorship. Both the philanthropic and commercial sides of the art world operate in ways both visible and invisible, constantly causing the modalities of artists’ practices to shift and restructure.
The panel includes artist Edgar Arceneaux and Deana Haggag, President and CEO of United States Artists.
MCA Talks highlight cutting-edge thinking and contemporary art practices across disciplines and are organized by Curator January Parkos Arnall and Assistant Curator Christy LeMaster, with the Performance and Public Practice team
