ICI Curatorial Hub

401 Broadway, Suite 1620
FREE and open to the public

Artists Chloë Bass and Lisi Raskin will continue the series “What is shared, what is offered” as they share thoughts on play. In these times of deep distress, how do we play?

For this Hub event at ICI, they’re going to play a game. Each artist has selected a series of images that the other has not seen. As the images are revealed one by one, Chloë will respond to Lisi’s selections, and Lisi to Chloë‘s, producing an instinctive conversation that leads to larger truths.


This event is free and open to the public. To attend, please RSVP to .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) with SHARED in the subject line.

This program is supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with City Council, and the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.

Chloë Bass

Chloë Bass is a conceptual artist working in performance, situation, publication, and installation. Her work addresses scales of intimacy, where patterns hold and break as group sizes expand, and daily life as a site of deep research. Her current project, The Book of Everyday Instruction, is an eight-chapter investigation into one-on-one social interaction. Chloë is a 2017 - 2018 Workspace resident at the Center for Book Arts, and a 2017 studio resident at Triangle Arts Association. Her projects have appeared in recent exhibits at CUE Art Foundation, Elizabeth Foundation for the Arts Project Space, The Southeastern Center for Contemporary Art, the James Gallery, and elsewhere. Her forthcoming book will be published by the Operating System in December 2017; her writing is most often found on Hyperallergic. She is an Assistant Professor at Queens College, CUNY.

Lisi Raskin

Since 1998, Lisi Raskin has traveled to remote locations exploring the intersection of nuclear-age fears and utopian mythologies as they manifest in oral histories and the architectures of the Cold War. Raskin’s on-site research has informed the making of paintings, drawings, objects, videos, and large, constructed environments that she has exhibited internationally. Slowly but surely, Raskin’s installations have become laboratories where the artist deliberately builds bridges between politicized subject matter, utopian architecture, abstraction, collaborative making, non-hierarchical interventions into normative systems of power, and radical pedagogy. Her web projects have been published in Triple Canopy magazine, with The Dia Foundation, and on Creative Time Global Reports. She has built large-scale environments at the 11th International Istanbul Biennale, the 2nd Athens Biennale, and the 3rd Singapore Biennale. She has installed site-sensitive sound projects in the 1st Time Machine Biennale of Contemporary Art, D-O Ark Underground and the Momentum 7 Biennale of Nordic Art. Raskin was born in Miami, Florida. She received her BA in Fine Arts from Brandeis University and her MFA from Columbia University. She has been the recipient of numerous awards and grants including a Creative Time Global Residency Grant, the Guna S Mundheim Berlin Prize at the American Academy in Berlin, among others. Raskin is currently department head of Sculpture at RISD and a member of the rock band Da Peeblz. With this group, she is working on an intersectional, feminist, children’s propaganda album.
