Wassaic Visiting Artists Lecture Series

The Wassaic Project announces the continuation of its art conversation series about contemporary art with:

Jesse Firestone is an independent curator who organizes exhibitions that utilize art as a generative field fueled by meditation, catharsis, alchemy, and action outside the market.  These exhibitions feature a range of mediums and curatorial tactics designed to create immersive and participatory experiences. By using art as a nexus to open a wide range of topics, Firestone turns the gallery into a zone for production, experimentation, and introspection as opposed to a blind worship or alienation. Firestone is particularly interested in fostering art as active resistance and art that prompts feeling through stimulation and interaction. - See more at: http://wassaicproject.org/events/visiting-artist-lecture-series/#sthash.Qt4iVls9.dpuf is an independent curator who organizes exhibitions that utilize art as a generative field fueled by meditation, catharsis, alchemy, and action outside the market.
