In a free, public talk, Phong Bui, co-founder and artistic director of the monthly journal the Brooklyn Rail will discuss that publication as a "social environment" in the tradition of Joseph Beuys’ "social sculpture" and Nicolas Bourriaud's "relational aesthetics."
Phong Bui is also an artist, writer, independent curator, and former curatorial advisor at MoMA PS1, 2007 to 2010 as well as the Co-Founder and Artistic Director of the publishing press Rail Editions, and the Rail Curatorial Projects.
The Intradisciplinary Seminar, sponsored by the The Cooper Union School of Art, presents a series of free, public lectures reflecting a broad range of contemporary art issues. Speakers include artists, writers, and thinkers currently engaged in a variety of practices. The emphasis is on interdisciplinary approaches, presenting new voices, international perspectives and scholarship across multiple fields. The series constitutes a lively forum for the exchange of ideas between practitioners, students, faculty and the public.
The Fall 2016 Intradisciplinary Seminar is part of the Robert Lehman Visiting Artist Program at The Cooper Union. We are grateful for major funding support from the Robert Lehman Foundation.
