Modern Cartoonist: The Art of Daniel Clowes opens at OMCA on April 14th and runs through August 12. This is Clowes’ first major survey exhibition, and tonight’s event will provide an opportunity to see how our perception of Clowes’ work shifts as it is recontextualized — both in a museum and in the collected presentation of a life’s work.

Tania Bruguera on useful art

"At the Queens Museum of Art last year, Tania Bruguera installed a piece that looked just like Duchamp’s Fountain—same model of urinal, same “R. Mutt” signature. The crucial difference: this one was in a men’s room, and it worked.

“You can see it, and you can pee in it,” she told a crowd assembled in a storefront in Corona, Queens, the neighborhood where she’s based this year. It’s the headquarters of Immigrant Movement International, a project she conceived as an “artist-initiated sociopolitical movement.” Presented by Creative Time and the Queens Museum and financed by the Annenberg Foundation, the Rockefeller Foundation, and others, the project is intended to operate at the juncture of art, politics, and community, examining and hopefully improving conditions in immigrants’ lives.”
