SESSIONS is a feminist collaborative art project that re-imagines the act of conversation as a politic for self-directed learning.
Envisioning art as play, SESSIONS: Con Verse Sensations takes the shape of a print-it-yourself book to be released as part of the thesis exhibitions at the Bard Center for Curatorial Studies in the spring of 2009. In both form and content, the book invokes the three-way theme of Con – pirating, Verse – language and Sensations – touch. Participation becomes central to the project and its distribution by means of sharing resources, intimacies, and engaging in serious play.
A portion of the artist fees paid through the CCS exhibition budget will be siphoned back into SESSIONS to fund an autonomous weekend art school playhouse that will take place in June in a residential Oddfellows Lodge in Germantown, NY.
SESSIONS: Con Verse Sensations is curated by Katerina Llanes as part of the requirements for the master of arts degree in curatorial studies.
Student curated exhibitions at CCS Bard are made possible with support from the Rebecca and Martin Eisenberg Student Exhibition Fund; Mitzi and Warren Eisenberg; and the Patrons, Supporters, and Friends of the Center for Curatorial Studies.
