Art²: Janette Laverrière, Bibliothèque Tournante

In 2014, it can be argued that reputational capital and visualized networks of consumable artistic identities precede, distort, and often surpass the reception of artworks and artists themselves, conditioning value in new ways and realizing new speculative assets.By putting forward a series of provocations and re-castings of the space between materialism, idealism, and ways of working that are identifiable but not easily consumable, curator Fionn Meade has invited Paris-based castillo/corrales, a co-operatively run non-profit contemporary art venue, to organize a series of programs and events reflecting on The Issues of Our Time at Artists Space Books & Talks.The platform also includes a separate exhibition, Bibliothèque Tournante, exploring the life and work of Janette Laverrière (1909-2011), including her role in crucial shifts in design aesthetics and the politics of value within architecture and interior design. Laverrière's exhibition will be complemented by a panel discussion. Organized in collaboration Silberkuppe and artist Nairy Baghramian.The research focus area Art & Value concludes with a new performance From the Sky by London-based artist Laure Prouvost at Danspace Project.
