Reproduction as a Creative Principle

presentation and discussion with
Pierre-Lin Renié
and Allan McCollum

Wednesday 21 February 2007
7 pm

Starting with the explosion of photographic reproduction in the 1850’s and moving through the 20th century when reproduction became a creative principle for many artists (from Duchamp to Gonzalez-Torres), Pierre-Lin Renié will explore issues revolving around the ways in which art is produced, publicized, traded and consumed, especially as it pertains to new media. 

Alan McCollum will present some of his latest projects and talk about image reproduction in his own work.

A discussion will follow.

Pierre-Lin Renié is curator in charge of the Musée Goupil (Bordeaux, France), a museum devoted to art publishing in the 19th century, and which holds the collection of the art publisher Goupil. He also teaches at the art school in Bordeaux. He was a fellow at the Clark Art Institute (2002) and at the Metropolitan Museum of Art (2004). He curated many shows, including the traveling exhibition Gérôme & Goupil: Art and Enterprise (2000-2001). He published several studies on prints and photographs in the 19th century, especially about the various issues connected with the phenomenon of the mass-produced reproduction of works of art in the 19th century. He also published essays on several contemporary artists, one of his other fields of interest.

American artist Allan McCollum has spent over thirty years exploring how objects achieve public and personal meaning in a world constituted in mass production. In 1975 his work was included in the Whitney Biennial, and he moved to New York City that same year. In the late seventies he became especially well known for his series, Surrogate Paintings.
McCollum has had over 100 solo exhibitions, including retrospectives in several European museums. He participated in the Aperto at the 1988 Venice Biennale, and his works are held in nearly seventy art museum collections worldwide, including the Museum of Modern Art, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York, the Art Institute of Chicago, and the Los Angeles Museum of Contemporary Art.

This event is FREE and is supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs

LOCATION ONE is a not-for-profit organization devoted to convergence between visual, performing and digital arts in a time of rapidly changing technology  . We invite artists from different disciplines and from different countries to work in our studios. We ask them to experiment with the new technologies of artistic creation, interaction and delivery. We urge them to collaborate in creating new works and give them virtual Internet spaces and physical gallery space to exhibit the results. Our goals are to foster the creation of new work, new forms of expression, and new capabilities in artists, and to advance new awareness in all those we reach.
