Institutional and pedagogical structures have once again come under scrutiny- intellectually, fiscally and politically. From Anton Vidokle’s Night School at the New Museum, to the publication of Art School, to the numerous trade-based and free schools appearing in the city and internationally, recent practice and discussion in art and art education have become key spaces for questioning and re-imagining “school.” As Hunter College continues to become a more “secure” campus, its public accessibility narrows to a few spaces – the galleries being chief among them. Inspired by these projects and texts that seek to question, trouble, and retool the physical and theoretical spaces of education, ACE presents i know you know i know you know i know. This two-day event invites a number of alternative schools and projects from within New York and beyond, utilizing the Times Square Gallery as a forum to offer classes, present lectures, and screen videos. We present i know you know i know you know i know in tandem with the forthcoming College Art Association Conference as a fresh view on the pitfalls and possibilities of the academy.
