Hanes Visiting Artist Lecture Series: Noah Fischer
March 6, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
Brooklyn-based artist Noah Fischer studied at RISD and Columbia University and his political installations were first exhibited in 2006. Today he has fused his studio art practice with movements for social and economic justice, and the work can be found in the gap between the museum and the streets. Often producing artworks and creative campaigns from within a group or network, Fischer’s 2011 manifesto sparked the collective Occupy Museums, which fights inequity propagated by cultural institutions. As a core member of Gulf Labor/G.U.L.F., Fischer also works on museums and labor. The performativity of Fischer’s direct action practice is inspired by a long-term theatrical collaboration with Berlin-based andcompany&Co with whom he has developed a number of touring productions such as 2017’s Not My Revolution If…The Stories of Angie O. His solo and collaborative work has been widely seen (and not always by invitation) at MoMA, Guggenheim, Brooklyn Museum, ZKM and Zamek Ujazdowski and in the 56th Venice, 2 Athens, and 7th Berlin Biennales and 2017 Whitney Biennials. Fischer frequently writes essays for international publication and maintains a studio practice in Brooklyn.
An endowment established in 1983 through the generosity of Nancy and Robin Hanes supports the Art Department’s Visiting Artist Series. This important program brings both established and emerging artists to campus to discuss their work in public lectures and to offer individual critiques to our M.F.A. students. The Hanes Visiting Artist series greatly enriches both our academic programs and our outreach to the wider community. All lectures are free and open to the public.
