01 Master Class: The Object of Art and the Art as Object with Ken Lum

Residency Dates: January 6 – February 23, 2010
Application deadline: September 14, 2009

The relationship between art and life has underlined the primary function of the avant-garde in art. The dialectical tension between those objects deemed art or non-art is itself an institutional function of the cultural (social) category of art. This Master Class will explore the operational functioning of the work of art within the constitution of the art world and in relation to different institutional frames.

Program dates: February 25 – March 27, 2010
