    Los Angeles artist Edgar Arceneaux leads a presentation and workshop based on his project, New Financial Architectures for Creative Communities (NFACC). Artists must think creatively and strategically about how to support their work and families financially. NFACC examines the relationship between the sources of artist support and their effects on an artist’s work. Arceneaux’s participatory workshop aims to help artists (and everyone) make purpose-driven decisions to create financial models suited to their individual needs. The theme of this presentation is effectivity and social practice in relation to the work of Broad collection artist, Joseph Beuys. Beuys scholar and art historian Daniel Spaulding will give an introduction to the workshop. Attendance will be limited to 100 people.

    Organized by The Broad and X-TRA, this special iteration of The Un-Private Collection addresses the legacy of German Fluxus artist Joseph Beuys in relation to contemporary art practice. Each program highlights a theme central to Beuys and invites contemporary artists to discuss their work and ideas through that lens. Summer Happenings at The Broad: Social Shaman (July 28, 2018) was also inspired by Beuys’ legacy, as we our program with Lynne Tillman and Kerry Tribe in May.
