• Andrea Fraser / Lecture at ICA LA

    Sunday, March 11, 2018 3 - 5pm Institute of Contemporary Art Los Angeles

    Andrea Fraser presents this lecture in conjunction with her essay for X-TRA, “Toward a Reflexive Resistance.” in which she considers the structural positions of the Left and Right in relation to cultural capital and power in the wake of the elections of 2016.  The essay discusses how artists and arts institutions both challenge and reinforce established relations of power, and the importance of critical reflexivity in the face of complex forms of domination.
