Please join us at Midway Contemporary Art library on Saturday 26 April 2014 for a talk by Sarah Lehrer-Graiwer on our recent One Work publication, Lee Lozano: Dropout Piece.
Dropout Piece (begun c.1970) is the name Lee Lozano gave to her self-imposed transformation from art world insider to outsider. It is also a large-scale action carried out with lifelong, indeed posthumous, consequences. In our new One Work, LA based writer and curator Sarah Lehrer-Graiwer presents it as a great experiment in art and endurance. Drawing closely upon Lozano’s private notebooks she argues that Dropout Piece still haunts the art world today as oral history, ephemera and fantasy, and reveals how Lozano’s practice advanced the relationship between language and performance and between private thought and urgent action.
