In this talk, Farah Nayeri addresses the difficult questions plaguing the art world, from the bad habits of the Old Masters, to the current grappling with identity politics.
Recounting her interviews with Nan Goldin, Sam Durant, Faith Ringgold, and others, Nayeri tackles wide-ranging issues including sex, religion, gender, ethics, animal rights, and race. She provides the tools to navigate the art world, by asking and answering questions such as the following: Who gets to make art, and who owns it? How do we correct the inequities of the past? What do authenticity, exploitation, and appropriation mean in art? (Sponosored by the CAA in Washington D.C.)
