PIONEER WORKS ANNOUNCES FIRST ALTERNATIVE ART SCHOOL FAIR
Oct 24, 2016
Today, Pioneer Works announced the first Alternative Art School Fair, set to take place between November 18-20 at the organization’s Red Hook headquarters. The fair is a fairly comprehensive survey of over 50 experimental schools from 11 countries, and it’s completely free. In a release, Pioneer Works noted that participating schools “operate with a wide range of methodologies, missions, and theoretical approaches, that see the artist as a defining figure in the development of new methodologies for hybridized disciplines.”
There will be interactive booths designed by each school and a keynote panel featuring Carol Becker, Luis Camnitzer, Dorothea Rockburne, Casey Gollan, Victoria Sobel and more to be announced. What’s more, keynotes, workshops and exclusive interviews with participants will be livestreamed and archived byClocktower Productions. “Even when relatively small in scale, these exploratory schools provide vital models of cultural critique and broaden the prevailing expectations of classroom environments and means of dissemination,” the release continued.
