#tbt to last weekend when artist #AndreaFraser read her latest essay to a full house @theicala - ‘Toward a Reflexive Resistance’ centered around the work of the late sociologist and philosopher #PierreBourdieu in reference to cultural capital versus critical reflexivity within the contemporary arts community. View more images from the lecture in conjunction with @xtraartjournal now on our Facebook page + highlights from our family workshop with @crayoncollection and artist Pearl C.

‘Grandfather: A Pioneer Like Us’ represents more than #HaraldSzeeman’s fascination with his grandfather - it’s an example of his visionary outlook about the role of a curator: curation beyond the institutional space to the domestic; an exhibition of accumulation versus art forms. It’s an insight into the mind of Szeemann. This week we look at the revolutionary curator with 2 #free talks: personal accounts and anecdotes about Szeemann by The Good Works Executive Director Elsa Longhauser and curator Philipp Kaiser will be discussed tonight, 7:30pm in ‘Harald and Elsa: The Kingdom of Referentials’ + @pictorialreference, Sue Spaid and Patricia A. Morton will pose the question, ‘are curators artists, too?’ in Boxing Philosophical this Friday, March 16 at 7:30pm. For more info visit our Event page 👉 theicala.org | #icala
Did you know there’s an apartment in our main gallery? A full-size reconstruction of the late curator Harald Szeeman’s home nearly 6000 miles away in Bern, Switzerland has been revived @theicala to create the 1974 installation, ‘Grandfather: A Pioneer Like Us’. Inside, the apartment has been filled with objects and inventions belonging to the curator’s grandfather, Étienne Szeemann, a noted hairdresser. This exhibition is in conjunction with @gettymuseum #GettyResearchInstitute - visit ‘Grandfather: A Pionner Like Us’ thru April 22 | #grandfatherapioneerlikeus #haraldszeeman #architecture #archidaily #dtla #icala
