About the Talk
Collaborating since 1995, Jennifer Allora and Guillermo Calzadilla incorporate sculpture, photography, performance, sound, and video in their art. Their hybrid works are often conceived as a set of experiments that test whether ideas such as authorship, nationality, borders, and democracy adequately describe today’s increasingly global and consumerist society. Throughout their collaborative practice, their work has also crossed the myriad boundaries between public and private space, exploring the ways in which basic materials and familiar forms can communicate complex and unexpected historical, cultural, and political metaphors and associations.
Public Art Fund Talks at The New School are organized by Public Art Fund in collaboration with the Vera List Center for Art and Politics at The New School.
This program is made possible in part by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature
