Artie Vierkant deals with our contemporary relationship to objects and images and the structures that govern our conception of ownership and authorship. He will discuss his recent work in the context of some of the critical questions at the center of his practice. They include: how to think of objects in the context of overwhelming media fluidity and whether we have the right to own our own self–image.
He has had recent solo exhibitions at Westfalischer Kunstverein, Munster Germany (2015), Mesler / Feuer, New York (2015), Untitled, New York (2014), and New Galerie, Paris (2013). He received his MFA from UCSD in 2012 and lives in NYC.
