Essential Questions of Life
Tuesday, October 4, 6:30 pm
King Juan Carlos I of Spain Center, 53 Washington Square South
Displaying objects intended to circumvent the institutional art system—and preserving
performative and ephemeral works in perpetuity—raises fundamental questions for art museums.
This panel will confront the challenges posed by exhibiting Fluxus works, addressing both
theoretical issues and hands-on museum practice. Speakers include Christophe Cherix, Chief
Curator of Prints and Illustrated Books, Museum of Modern Art; Alison Knowles, Fluxus artist;
Carlo McCormick, Senior Editor, Paper magazine; and Glenn Wharton, Time-Based Media
Conservator, Museum of Modern Art, and Research Scholar in Museum Studies, NYU.
Moderated by Julia Robinson.
Co-sponsored by NYU’s Program in Museum Studies, Department of Art History, and Grey Art

Tuesday, October 18, 6:30 pm

Defying Western concepts of time, presentation, and object-making, Fluxus challenges curators,

art. Speakers include Barbara London, Associate Curator of Media and Performance, Museum
of Modern Art; Midori Yamamura, independent curator; and Martha Wilson, Founding
Director, Franklin Furnace Archive. Moderated by Karen Finley, Arts Professor of Art and
