2 - Sun^1 p.m.A Conversation with Visiting Artist Hans Haacke
Maier Other, Maier Museum of Art

Moderated by Sarah Kleinman, Ph.D. student in the Department of Art History/School of the Arts at Virginia Commonwealth University.

Join world-renowned conceptual artist, Hans Haacke, for a conversation about seminal works from his oeuvre and his current installation at the Maier Museum of Art, "Dreams That Money Can Buy (Update)".  This is a rare opportunity to meet this provocative and influential artist.

“Dreams That Money Can Buy (Update)” is a site-specific installation on view from September 30 – December 16, 2016. The work he has created for the Maier is a combination of elements which have appeared in different contexts. The central focus is a piece entitled “The Business Behind Art Knows the Art of the Koch Brothers” (2014) and is a critique of the system of wealth-fueled influence over art, patronage and public relations. Rounding out the installation will be the maquette for “Gift Horse,” 2013, Haacke’s winning proposal for the Fourth Plinth on London’s Trafalgar Square in front of the National Gallery, London.

A brief tour of the installation and a reception will follow.
