Performance

Marie Karlberg: The Artist Will Be In Attendance

7pm, Wednesday

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.

Conversation

Eric Wesley and Forrest Nash in Conversation

12pm, Saturday

The Academy

Los Angeles-based artist Eric Wesley will activate his on-site project at ALAC in a conversation with Forrest Nash. Nash’s Contemporary Art Quarterly published a deep online archive of the artist's entire practice last year. The discussion will be viewed from a distance, live and on tape, from within the closed structure of Wesley's installation, a physical iteration of the archive only exhibited at ALAC; future viewers can only enter the project via it's documentation on Contemporary Art Quarterly. Wesley and Nash will consider this new work in relation to the artist's public Quarterly archive as well as Wesley's other projects past, present and future.

The much-anticipated event will feature paintings, sculptures, photographs, and works on paper from leading emerging and established artists worldwide. Bidding online and in advance will take place online via Paddle8 beginning February 5.


RHMF is a nonprofit organization based in New York City that provides direct support both to cancer patients needing financial help to connect to family and loved ones, and to visual artists at a critical juncture in their careers. The Foundation was created in September 1995 by friends and family of Rema Hort Mann, to honor her joyful and vivacious life after her untimely death from stomach cancer. RHMF carries forward Rema’s passion and strength by providing three distinct, bicoastal grant programs.


RHMF has evolved into a dynamic and effective organization, acting as a bedrock of support for individuals suffering from cancer and an advocate for emerging artists. By combining these two missions, RHMF commemorates Rema’s life by upholding the values closest to her heart.


Ticket prices are $50 in advance of the event and $60 at the door. Purchase here.

Charwei Tsai in conversation with Kit Hammonds

1pm, Sunday

The Academy

Join Taipei-based multimedia practitioner Charwei Tsai and Kit Hammonds, Curator at Museo Jumex, in a conversation centered on Root of Desire, published in January 2019 on the occasion of Charwei Tsai's recent solo exhibition at TKG. Root of Desire continues Tsai’s long-term examination of Mahāyāna and Hīnayāna Buddhism and centers around the Vimalakirti Sutra, an ancient spiritual text celebrated for its emphasis on gender equality. When asked “How should one look at a sentient being?” Vimalakirti responded, “the way a wise person looks at the reflection of the moon in water.”
