Lecture Sean Dockray: The Public School


SD_1.jpg

Time: Tuesday 1 November 6 pm
Place: Iaspis, Konstnärsnämnden, Maria skolgata 83, Stockholm

Sean Dockray will be talking about the life of The Public School over the past four years, from its origins in Los Angeles to its current manifestation in ten cities internationally. Initially formed within a small gallery as a response to the often destructive demands for "exhibitability" from artistic production, the school has performed in many ways for many people, sometimes incubating new projects and collectives.

Sean Dockray lives in Los Angeles. He is an artist and a founding director of Telic Arts Exchange, a non-profit arts organization providing a critical engagement with new media and culture. Dockray initiated The Public School and AAAARG.ORG, projects that have taken on a life of their own and operate internationally. This year Sean has participated in the Encuentro Internacional de Medellin (MDE11) with Caleb Waldorf and Fiona Whitton and "Shadowboxing" at the Royal College of Art in London. He is a co-chair of the Mobility Shifts conference at the New School and has recently spoken at the Townhouse Gallery in Cairo, the 29th São Paulo Biennial, "Properties of the Autonomous Archive" in Bombay, and the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth. Dockray's writing has been published in Cabinet, Bidoun, X-TRA, Volume, and Fillip.

This is the second in a series of talks at Iaspis by international artist led initiatives setting up frameworks for engagement exceeding individual practice. The emphasis of the series will be on self-organized structures emanating from specific needs and circumstances rather than reproducing conventional formats. During autumn, the presentations will take place at Iaspis on the first Tuesday of every month. On the 6th of December Lorenzo Romito (Rome) will talk about Stalker.
