Carson Salter (AmbI)
a presentation on contemporary artist’s enterprises
thursday 24/1/13 7.30pm
Carson Salter, MIT artist and researcher will discuss artists who bring their knowledge to non-art markets. A short history of the artist-as-consultant (e.g. Artists Placement Group, Ocean Earth) and relevant contemporary cases (K-Hole, Rhei Research, etc.) will be framed in terms of productive ambivalence + ambiguity.
