Alissa Firth-Eagland: How to Act in Public

Curator Conference

Thursday July 8 2010, 5pm-7pm

Project Description

To introduce herself and her practice, Alissa Firth-Eagland will unpack and present some tools of a nomadic culture worker with the audience. She will read a fictive text within which the protagonists are The Bruce High Quality Foundation (New York) and Claire Fontaine (Paris). This text is the public sphere within which these artists first met, and is the entry point into an open group discussion about what possibilities for artistic action exist within the public sphere. Alissa Firth-Eagland’s talk is presented in collaboration with the Centre de recherche urbaine de Montréal, International Residency (CIR) program.
