is pleased to begin its off-site program of events with Annex,
a series of six artists' talks organized by Shana Lutker and
held at the Mountain Bar in Chinatown over three consecutive
Sundays. Each talk takes the form of a conversation between the
artist and a person of their choice whose particular professional
knowledge or expertise is of interest to them for the ways in
which it may inform their practice, or simply fulfill their curiosity.
Annex explores the relationship between artists and experts
as it oscillates between research and collaboration in times
that are increasingly reliant on specialist knowledge, and that
have seen art practice itself no longer being solely defined
by the perfection of a craft. As artists have increasingly referenced
specialist disciplines, even adopted them in some cases, these
conversations shed new light on their practice. The range of
topics covered, from the representation of the human head to
the techniques of protection from ballistic attacks, highlights
the infinite areas of specialized knowledge. We are invited to
discover only a few of them through the lens of these artist's
Participating artists: Meg Cranston, Sean Dockray, Shana Lutker,
Angie Waller, and Mario Ybarra Jr.
Two conversations will take place each Sunday.
