Theorist Stephen Wright lectures on issues of how art is used – its use value, or its “usology”. Trying to reposition art away from formats that impede its growth, Wright proposes an “escape” from constrictive paradigms. His lecture will reframe art’s usology within an “epistemology of the south” with primary focus on work from Argentina and the community driven practices that emerged out of the financial crisis of 2001. Followed by open conversation.
