Office Hours at LA><ART

Office Hours are occasions for extended in-person dialogues between artists and their publics. Taking from the academic tradition of “office hours,” participating artists offer scheduled one-on-one meetings to follow up on aspects of their work and further pursue open questions, in a setting apart from the lecture hall or classroom. As an ongoing program, Office Hours fosters reception of artistic interests through enquiry, exchange, and reflection.

Individuals may sign up for one 50-minute meeting by emailing one of the available dates and times listed below to: All meetings are held at LA><ART. The program is free and open to all publics.

. Available appointments:
Tuesday, April 2, 2013
3pm – 3:50pm
4pm – 4:50pm
5pm – 5:50pm

Tania Bruguera’s participation in Office Hours is coordinated with USC Roski’s Chelle Barbour, a 2013 Master’s candidate in the MA Art and Curatorial Practices in the Public Sphere program. The program emphasizes the practice and history of art, curating and critical theory. In addition to realizing an individual work of advanced research in a thesis, Master’s candidates produce a curatorial practicum and related programs as a means of raising social questions about art and art’s publics. Barbour’s work with Bruguera precedes the artist’s free open public evening lecture at USC Roski on April 3rd (7pm), at the University Park Campus, 850 West 37th Street, Los Angeles, CA 90089.

Special acknowledgement is extended to Connie Butler, Visiting Professor in the M.A. Art and Curatorial Practices in the Public Sphere program at the Roski School of Fine Arts at USC and Chief Curator of Drawings at The Museum of Modern Art, New York, for her efforts in making Tania Bruguera’s participation in Office Hours possible.
