\n

K ris Martin is the spring Capp Street Project artist in residence\, and one of the seven artists participating in the Wattis Institute’s three-year pro gram The Magnificent Seven. Based in Ghent\, Belgium\, Martin is a mong the most celebrated European artists of his generation. His conceptual practice centers on the fragility of the human condition\; his frequent us e of the readymade -- from boulders to texts by Dostoyevsky to common nails -- alludes to the poignancy inherent in everything that surrounds us.

\n

Over the course of this semester\, Martin is leading a class of 13 graduate Fine Arts students in creating new works on the subject of time. Graduate school is a period when art students are d eveloping their own practices\, their own career paths. And so\, Martin fin ds it appropriate to transform the private space of the classroom into the public space of an art gallery\, with the latter’s new set of expectations around finished pieces and the status of the working\, professional artist.

\n

The seminars and tutorials associated with the course will take place within this gallery\, together with the ph ysical production of the new works. The gallery is open to the public durin g the Wattis’s regular hours.

\n

Lead sponsorship for the Capp Street Project artist residency of Kris Martin is provided by the Nimoy Foundation.
