Art Work Symposium Tomorrow at SMU

by Anne Bothwell 11 Jun 2010 4:14 PM

Learn more about Temporary Services ART WORK project, and how artists respond in times of economic downturns. The Symposium is sponsored by SMU and CentralTrak and features artists and professors from Chicago, New York and Dallas.


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.
