Elena Filipovic in Dialogue with Lucy Steeds

27 nov 2017
Public talk
Central Saint Martins, University of the Arts London, London.

We are pleased to announce that on Monday 27 November Elena Filipovic will be in dialogue with Lucy Steeds on the subject of artists as curators.

For this event, Filipovic will draw from her recently-published One Work book, David Hammons: Bliz-aard Ball Sale, an unannounced action in which the artist peddled snowballs on the streets of New York in 1983.

Steeds will present and analyse the focus of a book in Afterall’s Exhibition Histories series: ‘an Exhibit’, the maze-like installation built by artists Richard Hamilton and Victor Pasmore, with the writerly involvement of Lawrence Alloway, first in Newcastle with the help of art students in 1957, before its transfer to the ICA in London.

Uniting these two artistic case studies, and opening up to further examples, Elena and Lucy will debate the history of artists as curators. Specifically, Elena will draw on her work for The Apparently Marginal Activities of Marcel Duchamp (The MIT Press, 2016) and her edited volume The Artist as Curator (Mousse Publishing, 2017) to which Lucy contributed.
