SculptureCenter and Paper Monument are pleased to present On Pedagogy and Practice with Keith Boadwee and Justin Lieberman. This program draws on an existing dialog between two artists whose practices are acutely influenced by their experiences as art professors. Both artist-teachers share an interest in collective authorship and radical education, and take a critical stance toward of the professionalization of art school. In their artwork, Boadwee and Lieberman push questions of accepted taste, challenging existing academic standards. Boadwee will discuss Club Paint, an ongoing collaboration with two of his former students, Isaac Gray and Erin Allen. Lieberman will speak on his S. A. C. (Student Art Collective) project, currently on view at SculptureCenter, which examines ethics and power relations in pedagogical settings. This event was organized in conjunction with SculptureCenter's 2013 In Practice program exhibition Double Life and is moderated by SculptureCenter Assistant Curator Kristen Chappa.
