During this meeting, we will work towards imagining a double practice as both institution-builders and art practitioners. Activities will span mind-mapping, mantra-writing, and small group discussions.

This session of Artist/Admin, facilitated by Natalia Nakazawa, is intended primarily for administrators in arts organizations who also are pursuing an independent artistic practice, but is also suited for people who are simply interested in both administrative work as well as artistic creativity. We will discuss the many ways these two practices can be fused or separated, both from a practical and philosophical perspective. 

Artist/Admin is a monthly meeting of artists and administrators to discuss + create new forms of the cultural institution. Readings and/or viewings will be circulated beforehand.

Natalia Nakazawa is an artist, educator, and arts administrator. She is currently the Assistant Director of EFA Studios, a program of The Elizabeth Foundation for the Arts, which provides subsidized studio space to over 100 artists in midtown Manhattan. Additionally, she implements educational programming and young artist mentorship for NYC public school students through the Museum of Arts and Design.

This event is presented in conjunction with the group exhibition, The Visible Hand, curated by David Borgonjon. On view at CUE Art Foundation January 7 - February 15, 2017.
