Artists Space

Artists Space Dialogues: Ciarán Finlayson

Artists Space Dialogues is an ongoing series in which an invited curator brings together influential figures in contemporary art and culture to join them in a series of three in-depth public discussions. Our spring series is organized by Ciarán Finlayson, a writer and editor based in New York City. Finlayson has invited artists and philosophers who examine the histories, possibilities, and failures of left politics in a global context. Each of the participants is either engaged in building and sustaining an arts or education institution or in making work about the meaning of exemplary transdisciplinary art and education institutions for the present.

These programs will be streamed online via Zoom. To attend, please click on this link at the time of the event.
