As part of the Visual Cultures Guest Lecture Series, Fareed Armaly will speak on his artistic practice.
My approach considers the open definition of artistic practice as itself the medium by which to render new correspondences from issues pertaining to a politics of representation, and project onto changing institutional frameworks. This began with my interest in the play of identity represented by the emerg- / submerging hyphen in ‘Arab-American’ and the new semiotic spirit of a ‘recording-culture’ generation. In terms of this, my talk will focus on the inbetween space of processing by a few artifacts, whose vexed construction offered a starting point from which to develop a ‘script’ for projects such as “From/To”.
FAREED ARMALY is an American artist whose practice develops projects ranging from D.I.Y. music/culture journals (“Terminal Zone”, 1988) to large-scale, exhibition-based (“From/To”, Witte de With, 1999 / Documenta 11, 2002) and programming at the institutional level (Artistic Director, Künstlerhaus Stuttgart, 1999-2003)
