New York Public Library discussion with Curator and Artists of “The Artist’s Museum” now on view at ICA/Boston

. November 30, 2016

On the occasion of the publication of the catalogue accompanying The Artist’s Museum, the exhibition currently on view at the Institute of Contemporary Art/Boston (ICA), the New York Public Library’s An Art Book program presents artists Carol Bove, Anna Craycroft, and Sara VanDerBeek in conversation with Dan Byers, ICA’s Mannion Family Senior Curator. The free public program takes place on Wednesday, December 14, in the Library’s Celeste Auditorium at Fifth Avenue at 42nd Street, at 6:00 pm.

The Artist’s Museum comprises immersive artworks that bring together art, artifacts, and natural materials to create distinct models from each artist’s world. Employing the language of museum display, the artists chart the recurrence of forms and themes across cultures and history, to reveal unexpected relationships and affinities. The artists engage a variety of disciplines and subjects, such as dance, music, design, gender, sexuality, and technology. Among the other artists included are Rosa Barba, Mark Leckey, Pierre Leguillon, Christian Marclay, Goshka Macuga, and Rosemarie Trockel.

The fully illustrated catalogue, published by Prestel, includes texts by Byers; Claire Bishop, art historian, critic, author, and Professor of Art in the History Department at CUNY Graduate Center, New York; Lynne Cooke, Senior Curator, Special Projects in Modern Art, National Gallery of Art, Washington, DC; and Ingrid Schaffner, Curator of the 2018 Carnegie International, Carnegie Museum of Art. Copies will be available for purchase and signing at the end of the event.

Wednesday, December 14, 2016 – 6:00 p.m. Auditorium doors open to public at 5:30 p.m.
