Image above: A screen shot of artist Carolyn Lazard (lower left) and students in Andrew W. Mellon Postdoctoral Fellow Catherine Damman’s class CHUM325: The Work of Art Against Work: Art, Labor, Politics. Lazard is sharing their computer screen, and the work shown is Lazard’s Support System (for Park, Tina, and Bob), 2016. This durational piece addresses the performance of convalescence, disabled sociality, collaborative art practice, and the transactional nature of emotional labor. Support System (for Park, Tina, and Bob) is performed over the course of a day, from 9am to 9pm. Visitors are invited to sign up for a 30-minute slot for a one-on-one performance with the artist, who spends the day in bed. The cost of admission is one bouquet of flowers. See News from the Creative Campus Initiative for more information.
