Experimental Ethics in Art
What does it mean for artists and art workers to intervene in the cultural and legal codes governing how their labor is compensated? Is it possible to use algorithmic and financial tools to decide the way artwork circulates in the world—who can own, modify, or even view an image file? Jonathan Beller, Lise Soskolne (WAGE), and Joan Kee discuss artists’ contracts, smart contracts like blockchain, and grassroots solidarity networks in the art field. Moderated by Brian Kuan Wood.

Monday, April 1, 7 pm
A New Internationalism with Maria Lind and Kate Fowle
While curators have been central in creating new forms of institutions that expand networks and collaborations following the 1990s biennial boom, growing pains are now emerging under the increasingly politicized climate of globalization’s spectacle culture. Two of the world’s leading curators, Maria Lind and Kate Fowle, ask: How might curators embrace a new internationalism? Moderated by Brian Kuan Wood.

Events will take place at SVA MA Curatorial Practice, 132 W. 21st Street, 10th floor, NYC. Applications for the MA Program in Curatorial Practice is now being accepted. For information, visit macp.sva.edu.
