The Southland Institute (for critical, durational, and typographic post-studio practices) is dedicated to exploring, identifying, and implementing meaningful, affordable, sustainable alternatives to higher education in art and design in the United States.
It is an unaccredited postgraduate workshop and evolving public online repository of educational resources, built around a central curricular helix consisting of the tools, processes, histories, and discourses of typography and critical art-making. It is also a forum for inquiry into the processes, potentials, and complications of education and its attendant structures and systems.
The Southland Institute is located in Los Angeles, CA
Discussions in Exhibitions
Adrian Piper: Concepts and Intuitions, 1965-2016
Saturday, December 15, 11am
Discussions in Exhibitions meets within Adrian Piper: Concepts and Intuitions, 1965-2016 to broaden the potential for reflexive dialogue occurring throughout the rooms of the exhibition in negotiating the space between our varied concepts and intuitions of it as a public.
In addition to the robust educational programming that has accompanied this retrospective in the way of symposium, panel discussion, numerous artist-led interpretative talks, and curatorial walkthroughs, Saturday, December 15 affords an occasion to hear Adrian through listening to each other.
Reminder: Underground parking at the Hammer is $6 (cash only).
Discussions in Exhibitions has been invested since 2010 in considering ticketless exhibitions, and their limits, through publicly initiated discussions occurring from within. As a sporadic series of unsanctioned gatherings, the aim continues to be providing opportunities for situational dialogue on the choices which compose shows and characterize the work inside them, stimulated by the diverse perspectives of those in attendance. By extension an inquiry into, and representation of, what is public in these spaces becomes tangible in the process.
Discussions in Exhibitions is part of the Southland Institute public events series. Discussion open to all.
