Hoarding, or Adventures in Form
Monday, February 13
133 West 21st Street, Room 101C
New York, NY 10011
BFA Visual and Critical Studies presents an evening with Gregg Horowitz, Professor of Philosophy at Pratt Institute. Professor Horowitz will be discussing the formal adventures of hoarding: the compulsive inability to discard possessions. To what extent can the hoarder’s melding of overvaluation and indifference cast light on artistic practices that strive to save things from the esteem and disesteem characteristic of standard hierarchies of value? Artists discussed will include Alighiero e Boetti, Agnes Martin, and Paul McCarthy. The evening will conclude with a brief Q&A.
