Informed by therapeutic approaches, EFA Project Space's current exhibition, Progeny!, pairs a group of contemporary artists with their artist-parents to explore relationships of influence, genetics, and interdependence within artistic families. As the exhibition draws to a close, the curators have decided to bring in a professional. Psychoanalyst Jamieson Webster will walk through the exhibition and discuss the works on view with curators David Levine, Michelle Levy, and some of the participating artists.
This event is free and open to the public.
Jamieson Webster is a psychoanalyst in New York. She has written for Artforum, Apology, Cabinet, The Guardian, Playboy, Spike, and The New York Times. Author of The Life and Death of Psychoanalysis (Karnac, 2011) and Stay! Illusion, with Simon Critchley (Pantheon, 2013), she is currently working on The Cambridge Introduction to Jacques Lacan, with Marcus Coelen, and a new book, Conversion Disorder (Columbia, 2018).
This event takes place in conjunction with Progeny!, on view through January 6, 2018.
