7:00 - 8:00pm "Do I Know What I'm Doing?" discussion

8:00 - 9:30pm  A Pattern video screening

"Do I Know What I'm Doing?" Please join us for a discussion of liability issues for several dangerous hypothetical artworks.  

Providing Insurance Solutions for art that looks like reality: HOW IS IT DONE? What happens when organizationally sponsored social practice art is produced in environments that are difficult to control? Does art produce NEW and ORIGINAL liabilities? Does insurance define the final frontier of institutionally sponsored art? Are there established protocols and loopholes (wink wink)? Should artists make insurance considerations when proposing new work? Can EXCITING, new breakthroughs happen in this field? and Do I (Even) Know What I’m Doing

Calling all Artists, Organizations, and Insurance Agents: Contribute knowledge for the benefit of all! Please join us for our open discussion on art and insurance liability. 

A Pattern is a screening of a video essay made from a configuration of notes, and images exploring the construction of the parts of Manhattan called The Garment District, 42nd street and Times Square. It is a desire for presence, a legitimate address, without anything else than it's own production. The screening will be housed in the structure designed and built by Rachel Higgins and Danyel Ferrari.

This event is organized in conjunction with the exhibition Failing to Levitate on view June 6 - July 3, 2014. Please click here for more information about the exhibition and follow the projects as they evolve atfailingtolevitate.net.
