Full Dollar: Contemporary Art and Phantasmagoric Partnerships
Thursday, June 6, 2013

ICI Curatorial Hub
401 Broadway, Suite 1620
New York, NY 10013

X. Andrade, chairman-for-life of Full Dollar, presents a conversation on phantom entities in contemporary art practices with Filip Noterdaeme (the Homeless Museum, Brooklyn) and Ruben Bonet (Fundación Adopte a Un Escritor, Mexico City). The three will offer their take on institutional critique through their own organizations, and their use of text-based interventions: Full Dollar’s move from art to textual production and back, the Homeless Museum’s current manifestation as a book, and Fundación Adopte a Un Escritor’s infamous Manifiesto Introducible. X. Andrade is the founder of Full Dollar, established in 2004, a company that takes an ethnographic look at art scenes and institutions, and the social life of objects, images, and ideas.

This event is free and open to the public. Please RSVP to .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) with FULL DOLLAR in the subject field.

His current project is The Full Dollar Collection of Contemporary Art (2009-13), a critique of institutional collecting practices formulated under the language of sign painting. A first iteration of this project is currently being shown in the neighborhood of Highland Park, Los Angeles. The collection as such will be exhibited in Quito and Guayaquil in June and July 2013. All of Full Dollar’s projects require collaboration with artists and non-artists. As a professor, he teaches at the Facultad Latinoamericana de Ciencias Sociales (FLACSO-Ecuador).
