Join us on June 2 for a salon conversation led by Nancy Hart, based on close reading of an essay from The Murmuring of the Artistic Multitude: Global Art, Memory and Post Fordism, by Pascal Gielen (Antennae // Valiz, Amsterdam, Netherlands, 2010).

Together in a dialog with others, we will explore various intersections that claim engagement in our current artistic practices. In a slow read of the chosen “text”, written from critical motivation, this open session will not be preconceived but will be defined by the parameters of the participants.

The goal of this shared public reading in a “relational aesthetic” situation, a term coined by Nicolas Bourriaud in his 1998 book to refer to artistic practices that extend into a realm that includes the whole of human relations and their social context, is to see what it might reveal about what we do [as creative makers] that is an engagement with a neo-liberal market economy.

About our host: Nancy Hart is a recent graduate from the Art Institute of Boston’s MFA Low Residency program, the last class before its demise. The dismantling of the 100 year old historical institution has informed her critical view of art discourse and the situational platform of its professional reverberations.

Hart has a BFA from Tufts/The School of the Museum of Fine Arts and MFA from AIB. Originally a self taught a painter, she now illuminates and charts her current interests and explorations in ephemeral sculptural installation. As an avid reader and font of ideas, she claims “The Studio Mind”, her MFA thesis as her methodological pathway. She has a natural inclination to absorb, connect and hybridize myriad cultural productions such as painting, sculpture, photography, architecture, film, fashion, print matter and food.
