A.L. Steiner speaks about the work of W.A.G.E. (Working Artists and the Greater Economy), a New York-based activist and consciousness-raising group formed in 2008. W.A.G.E. advocates that fair payment practices be established for the visual artists, performers, and independent curators with whom U.S. art institutions choose to work.
A.L. Steiner is a co-organizer of W.A.G.E., along with A.K. Burns and K8 Hardy. Steiner is a Brooklyn-based artist, writer, curator, and performer, and is an instructor at the School of Visual Arts.
This lecture is free and open to the public. Artists, performers, curators, arts administrators, politicans, collectors, gallerists, and other interested/implicated parties are encouraged to attend.
