Museum Highlights: A Gallery Talk

The Future of Institutional Critique

Take It or Leave It: Institution, Image, Ideology artists Judith Barry, Dara Birnbaum, Andrea Fraser and Mary Kelly discuss how social, political, and artistic systems are addressed in their work and whether they envision the idiom of “institutional critique” remaining relevant in the future. Moderated by Take It or Leave It curators Johanna Burton, Keith Haring Director and Curator of Education and Public Engagement at the New Museum, and Anne Ellegood, Hammer senior curator.

In conjunction with the exhibition Take It or Leave It: Institution, Image, Ideology.
