About

In the context of the current ISCP exhibition Entanglements: Before And After NAFTA, curated by Bárbara Perea Legorreta, ISCP Jane Farver Curatorial Resident, two of the participating artists will offer insights into their research and recent work developed for this project.

Jason Mena will discuss his interest in economic trends, commodities, currency and value by establishing a comparison between the abandonment of the gold standard and the adoption of free floating exchange rates.

Roy Meuwissen will briefly outline and situate Allan Sekula’s Geography Lesson: Canadian Notes within his ongoing research project, which takes up Sekula’s investigation into economic histories by tracing connections between all three NAFTA trading partners. Sekula’s text will serve as a starting point to explore the virtual disappearance of vocabularies of industrialization and class distinction from much contemporary discourse—and their paradoxical resurrection in recent political arenas, in favor of post-Fordist approaches.

This program is supported, in part, by Greenwich Collection Ltd.; Hartfield Foundation; Jane Farver Memorial Fund; Lambent Foundation Fund of Tides Foundation; New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, in partnership with the City Council; New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature; and Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF).
