Plausible Artworlds @ Creative Time Summit
Plausible Artworlds has been asked to give the keynote at the Summit’s fifth and final session on Sunday afternoon, suitably entitled “Plausible Art Worlds.” In the spirit of the Tuesday-evening potluck presentations, this time it is Plausible Artworlds’ turn to describe its own background, methods and aspirations. The keynote will be followed by presentations by three artist groups, themselves instances of plausible artworlds in sharp contrast to the mainstream: Chto delat/What is to be done?, Eating in Public and The International Errorists. The session hopes to spark a discussion about the alternatives to the capitalist art market currently being tested — as a way of opening a broader yet more singular discussion as to one’s own line of flight for the production of dynamic cultural potentialities.
This conversation is just one of the pieces of the ongoing Plausible Artworlds project, comprised of weekly discussions in the form of potlucks, with a continuously expanding-and-contracting, decentralized usership, during which informal, open-ended and lively discussions are held with invited artists, writers, activists and anyone interested. The goal is to explore the multitude of nuanced artworlds, and indeed lifeworlds, that are emerging every day and to cite the various approaches to world re-making.
As mentioned on The Creative Time website, the summit is a two-day conference that brings more than forty cultural producers together to discuss how their work engages pressing issues affecting our world. Their international projects bring to the table a vast array of practices and methodologies that engage with the canvas of everyday life. The participants range from art world luminaries to those purposefully obscure, providing a glimpse into an evolving community concerned with the political implications of socially engaged art.
Those unable to attend can follow the discussions via live streaming.
