A while back, Jerome Weeks told us about how artists were exploring ideas about money, labor and art for a show at Central Trak called “The Non-Profit Margin.” You can still check out that show, and this weekend, part II of a series of events around it kicks off.
Tomorrow, head to SMU for a symposium, “Art Work: A Local Conversation about Art, Labor and Economics.” The discussion will be moderated by Noah Simblist, associate art professor, artist and writer. Speakers include: Dr. Michael Corris, Chair of the Div. of Art at SMU’s Meadows School of the Arts; New York-based artist Maureen Connor, an artist from New York; Bryce Dwyer, artist with the Chicago collective inCUBATE; Marc Herbst, co-Editor of The Journal of Aesthetics & Protest; and Brent Brown of bcWORKSHOP. Free parking in the “U Lot” just south of the building. More details.
Can’t make it tomorrow? Next up: a series of readings at CentralTrak on June 19.
