Institutions by Artists: Session Four

April 14, 2014 / In the context of decreased public funding for the arts in North America and Europe as well as the nearly non-existent financial support elsewhere for the arts, ad hoc, small-scale, temporary, and often nomadic institutions created by artists have taken root in unanticipated sites, appearing in domestic or appropriated spaces that rely upon the collected resources and relationships of artist networks for their survival. Whether through organizational structures or modes of operation, these artist-run initiatives have constructed institutional armatures through largely if not exclusively informal means. Presenters in this session will survey the practices and strategies of artist-run initiatives that involve or encourage intimate institution building grounded in expanded notions of family, kinship, club, and neighbourhood, among other social forms.
