Artist Talk: Bed as Studio: Deconstructing “Hard Work”

When does the art-making start and stop? What do we consider “the work”? Which ways of working are valued? How are notions of hard work and morality entangled and what worlds can we dream with an ethics of care? Join artist and MAD Artist Studios resident Alex Dolores Salerno for a slumber party where they will discuss the historical context of these questions and their present-day implications. Alex will present the legacy of artwork made from the bed as well as their own creative practice that incorporates bedding materials. All participants will then be invited to join the conversation. We encourage participants to get cozy and join from their bed or any comfortable space. Please feel free to reach out to with any access needs. ASL interpretation and closed captions will be provided and all images will be visually described.
