> DESCRIPTION

Alighiero Boetti’s production method for his arazzi (embroideries) has raised interesting issues about his collaboration with Afghan embroiderers. Artists Sam Durant and Liza Lou discuss the nature of conceptualization and fabrication in their own art, which range from Durant’s politically-engaged multimedia works to Lou’s ongoing collaboration with Zulu women beaders in South Africa. Alma Ruiz, guest curator of Order and Disorder: Alighiero Boetti by Afghan Women and senior curator at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles, moderates.

Speakers: artists Liza Lou and Sam Durant, moderated by Alma Ruiz
