Enter the Exit

February 1, 2010

As part of the spring 2010 Art in the First Person lecture series, the BFA Fine Arts Department is presenting Iconic Shows: A Talk with Exit Art’s Founders and Creative Directors Papo Colo and Jeanette Ingberman. Starting in 1982 with “Illegal America,” which used mimeographs, Xeroxes and other radical means to present multimedia artwork, Exit Art has mounted more than 100 groundbreaking presentations of art, theater, film and video. According to the gallery’s mission statement, “Exit Art is an independent vision of contemporary culture prepared to react immediately to important issues that affect our lives.” Colo and Ingberman will be on hand to discuss some of the most iconic shows of this historic, independent New York City cultural space, including “Fever” (1992), “Paradise Now: Picturing the Genetic Revolution” (2000), “The LP Show” (2001) and “Exit Biennial: The Reconstruction” (2003).

The talk will take place on Thursday, February 4, 7pm, at 209 East 23rd Street, 3rd-floor amphitheater. Admission to this event is free and open to the public.
