The Conditions of Being Art: Artist Talk with Andrea Fraser
CCS Bard, Classroom 102
2:00 pm – 4:00 pm
As part of The Conditions of Being Art, a series of public programs will extend the exhibition research, through screenings, talks, and conversations. On Saturday, October 13, artist Andrea Fraser will speak to her work in the exhibition, addressing her exhibitions at American Fine Arts, Co. during the 1980s and 1990s. The exhibition also includes Ana Mendieta’s Ñáñigo Burial (1976), an important work in her Silueta series, that was previously presented at Pat Hearn Gallery. Ñáñigo Burial consists of 47 black candles arranged in a silhouette of the artist’s body. As part of the re-creation of Mendieta’s work in the Hessel Museum exhibition, the candles will be lit on Saturday, October 13, during the museum’s open hours, between 11:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m.
