“That the art world, now a global multibillion-dollar industry, is not part of the ‘real world’ is one of the most absurd fictions in art discourse.”
(Andrea Fraser, From the Critique of Institutions to an Institution of Critique, 2005)
Readings by poets Divya Victor and Maged Zaher examine how cultural, colonial, and economic institutions shape our lives, and how we might resist that domination.
Divya Victor is the author of Natural Subjects (Trembling Pillow, 2014, winner of the Bob Kaufman Award), UNSUB (Insert Blanc, 2015), Things to Do with Your Mouth (Les Figues, 2014), Swift Taxidermies 1919–1922 (GaussPDF, 2014), and Goodbye John! On John Baldessari (GaussPDF, 2012).
Maged Zaher is the author of The Consequences of My Body (Nightboat Books, 2016), If Reality Doesn't Work Out (Split Level Texts, 2014), Thank You for the Window Office (Ugly Duckling Presse, 2012), and The Revolution Happened and You Didn't Call Me (Tinfish Press, 2012).
This event is organized by Alli Warren and is the twelfth event in our year-long season about and around the work of Andrea Fraser.
