The AC [Institute Direct Chapel] invites you to a VIP brunch. You’re invited to schmooze with 25 of the world’s most/least favorite CEOs alongside their faithful/faithless artist interpreter, Martin Gantman, who will also be in attendance.
“Empire:Davos” is a project which engages with the very real conception of an international economic empire and is the most recent work of Los Angeles-based artist Martin Gantman. With this work Gantman surveys and questions the corporate landscape by striving to portray the seemingly contradictory notions between bottom line economic performance and human welfare. Champagne anyone?
Curated by Holly Crawford, making a text appearance will be our “Outsourced Critics,” in the AC [Chapel]. These texts consist of essays, lists, stories, email correspondences and critical commentaries by Claude Closky, Eitan Buganim, Hemda Rosenbaum, Jerome Sans, Josette Balsa, Brian Curtin, Yonatan Amir, Vasif Kortun and Sven Lutticken, who were brought together with the assistance of Lillian Fellmann.
VIPs, help us to celebrate Martin Gantman and “rub elbows” with the Outsourced Critics by joining our champagne brunch on Saturday March 7th, 2009 from 10am-1pm in AC [Direct] I & II and AC [Chapel].
