|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 6:00 pm on Friday, repeating until June 21, 2019

Event Navigation

In conjunction with the exhibition Charlotte Posenenske: Work in Progress, Dia presents a month of open discussions at Dia:Beacon, which take Posenenske’s work as a point of departure. These Beacon-based evenings invite participants to contribute to a sustained conversation about the labor of making and the spaces in which this unfolds with artists, scholars, and activists from the region. Each of the four participatory sessions will address one of the central themes of Posenenske’s work: form, labor, space, and play.
Held in the galleries, each session is free and open to the public. These evenings will allow for private viewings of the exhibition with the curators and session leaders while the museum is closed.
Space limited; reservations are required. Resources related to the evening discussions will be available to registered participants in advance of each session.

This conversation with sociologist and labor scholar Stephanie Luce will focus on labor activism today.
 
Space
Friday, June 14, 2019, 6 pm
