Jeanine Oleson: Conduct Matters
(1000 items available)
Brooklyn-based interdisciplinary artist Jeanine Oleson created a 2017 exhibition at the Hammer Museum in Los Angeles, presenting her ongoing sharply absurdist response to research on the ways copper is produced and used in 21st-century capitalism. Through a video installation, objects and a performance the exhibition focused on the confused entwinement of the human into contemporary material. This title explores this exhibition on issues of labour, the environment, craft and performance. With humor, pathos and intellectual rigor, Oleson explores issues of labor, the environment, craft and performance.Conduct Matters features an introduction by Connie Butler, chief curator at the Hammer Museum, and texts by cultural historian Jaleh Mansoor and legal scholar K-Sue Park, along with the full script of Oleson’s video.
