2014 Biennial

Teach-in: Fred Lonidier

Fri, Apr 11, 2014  7 PM

Location: Lower Gallery

For this 2014 Biennial program, photographer and activist Fred Lonidier will lead a teach-in to consider the connections between art production and the working class. Nearly four decades after Lonidier exhibited his 1977 installation “The Health and Safety Game” at the Whitney, the artist continues to base his artistic practice in community organizing, and to reflect on the relevance of activism and the labor movement to the creation of art. The evening will also include a performance by the New York City Labor Chorus.

This event is free with Museum admission, which is pay-what-you-wish on Fridays, 6–9 pm. There are no special tickets or reservations.
