Institutions by Arists Launch at Et al.
April 7th, 2013

Fillip is pleased to announce a special launch event marking the release of Institutions by Artists: Volume One at Et al., San Francisco, on April 7, 2013, at 5 pm. Join book editors Jeff Khonsary and Kristina Lee Podesva and local contributors for an informal occasion celebrating the book’s launch.

In conjunction with the launch, we will screen Piet Mondrian 63–69, a film of a lecture delivered by Walter Benjamin at the Marxist Center in Ljubljana in 1986. In this talk, Benjamin presents several works of the abstract artist ranging in date from 1963 to 1996. This film is presented in conjunction with Recent Writings by Walter Benjamin, a forthcoming book by New Documents.

Produced alongside a three-day international conference organized this past fall in Vancouver, Canada, Institutions by Artists addresses the performance and promise of contemporary global artist-run centres and initiatives within the historical contexts that saw their emergence. Contributors include Vincent Bonin, AA Bronson, Luis Camnitzer, Barnaby Drabble, Makan Space, Pelin Tan, Vector Association, Anton Vidokle, Keith Wallace, and Pan Wendt, among many others.

Institutions by Artists is co-published by Fillip and the Pacific Association of Artist Run Centres and is the third title in Fillip’s Folio Series, which presents new and previously published writing by critics, artists, and curators that engages specific and recurring questions on international contemporary art.
