Art Talk Tuesdays at Brand Library & Art Center
Join us for an artist talk and discussion at Brand Library with Alice Konitz on Tuesday, March 7th, at 7pm and Michael Ned Holte Tuesday, April 4th, at 7pm.
Art Talk Tuesdays is an initiative of Brand Library & Art Center in which we invite contemporary artists to discuss their work and the issues that surround it, followed by a moderated discussion with Los Angeles artist and writer Jennifer Remenchik.
Alice Konitz holds a master’s degree in fine arts from the California Institute of the Arts and an Akademiebrief and Meisterschulerbrief from the Kunstadkademie in Dusseldorf. Konitz works with different elemental and physical processes such as temperature, airflow, and materials gathered from her immediate surroundings. Rather than using sculptures to illustrate her research, Konitz works with materials that have led her to new discoveries she would not have been able to see otherwise. Throughout the past decade, Konitz’s work could be described as a sculpture activating social space. In 2012, Konitz started a project called the Los Angeles Museum of Art (LAMOA), which served both as an art project and an artist museum. Through this piece, Konitz provided a space for a community of artists to showcase artwork and a platform to serve their needs.
Michael Ned Holte is a writer and independent curator based in Los Angeles. His areas of inquiry include the history, theory, and criticism of contemporary art; Southern California art history; exhibition making and history; micro institutions and alternative spaces; performance; experimental music and sound. Holte teaches at the California Institute of the Arts and is currently Associate Dean at the School of Art. He recently organized the exhibition “how we are in time and space: Nancy Buchanan, Marcia Hafif, Barbara T. Smith” at the Armory Center for the Arts, Pasadena, along with a parallel program of performances, screenings, and conversations.
Jennifer Remenchik is an artist and writer based in Los Angeles, CA. She graduated from the California Institute of the Arts with her MFA in Art in 2015 and from the University of Texas at Austin with her BFA in Studio Art in 2009. Her work has been exhibited in several institutions and galleries, including No Gallery, VIVO Media Arts Centre, HILDE, basement projects, Industry Lab, and The Contemporary Austin, among others. Remenchik has been selected for residencies at the Performing Arts Forum in St. Erme, France, Toni Areal in Zurich, Switzerland, the Banff Centre in Alberta, CA, the Vermont Studio Center in Johnson, VT and the Arquetopia Foundation in Cusco, Peru. She is a regular contributor to Hyperallergic and has written for CurateLA, BOMB Magazine, and Contemporary Art Review Los Angeles, amongst others.
Art Talk Tuesday artists are selected to reflect the diversity of the art scene of the greater Los Angeles area. This program is free and open to the public.
