Institutions by Artists
Sarah Lowndes & Matthew Richardson
Moderated by Jeff Khonsary

Fillip presents a book launch and debate focused around current and past institutional practices by artists. Internationally, artists have produced institutional models that act as an alternative to the limitations of marketdriven priorities. Artist-run centres, collectives, and artists’ publishing initiatives form a network of activity that often stands in contestation to dominate economic models, while simultaneously appropriating their language and methods. Using an informal debate format, Sarah Lowndes and Matthew Richardson will address the performance and promise of contemporary artist-run centres and initiatives within the context of Glasgow, the UK , and beyond.

This event is part of a series of activity produced by Fillip beginning in 2012. Initially developed together with the Pacific Association of Artists Run Centres, the project was supplemented by a 384-page book published within Fillip’s ‘Folio Series–Institutions by Artists: Volume One’, edited by Jeff Khonsary and Kristina Lee Podesva. A second volume will be released in the fall of 2014.

Fillip is a publication of art, culture, and ideas released three times a year by the Projectile Publishing Society from Vancouver, Canada.
