Nothing Was Delivered
Fionn Meade will talk about a current project, The Assistants, which looks at the transitive role of artworks as “assisting” figures, custodians of memory and producers of deviance, including work by Dieter Roth, Cathy Wilkes, Uri Aran, Rosemarie Trockel, Laure Prouvost, and Alexander Kluge, among others.
Fionn Meade is a curator and writer based in New York. He was most recently Curator at SculptureCenter, NY, where an exhibition he organized is currently on view with artists David Maljkovic and Lucy Skaer. His writing appears in such publications as Artforum, Mousse Magazine, Spike Quarterly, and Parkett, among others. He was the recipient of an Arts Writer Grant from Creative Capital and the Andy Warhol Foundation, and is currently a faculty member at the Center for Curatorial Studies at Bard College and in the MFA program for the Visual Arts at Columbia University.
About the Speakers Series: Each semester the Center for Curatorial Studies at Bard College hosts a regular program of lectures by the foremost artists, curators, art historians, and critics of our day, situating the school and museum’s concerns within the larger context of contemporary art production and discourse. Lectures are open to students and faculty, as well as to the general public, and will also be documented through video and/or audio recordings, which will reside in the CCS Bard Library and Archives. “Work in Progress” sessions of the Speakers Series highlight projects currently being developed by members of the CCS Bard faculty, offering a unique opportunity for engagement with ideas, methodologies, and pragmatics still in the process of testing and refinement.
