Marie Karlberg: The Artist Will Be In Attendance

7pm, Wednesday, February 13, 2019

The Academy

“I love your boyfriend’s art.” “Do you have a website… or a Soundcloud?” Marie Karlberg’s performances deal with the professionalizaton of the contemporary artist and the expectations of an artist as a product. In a new performance staged within “The Academy,” Karlberg will create a mise-en-scene of a gallery, appropriating familiar paintings as printed jpgs as a comment on the art world’s production of value, and stage an artist’s encounter with these systems by playing—and sending up—herself.
