A Confederacy of Heretics: Gallery talk (April 5, 2013)01:04:01

Eric Owen Moss and the three Confederacy of Heretics curators--Ewan Branda, Todd Gannon, and Andrew Zago--discuss the relationship between the content of the work and the design of its presentation. Discussing after-the-fact historical labels, and the challenge of communicating the relevance of the work to present-day audiences, Gannon argues that their concept of the show was exploratory, and non-didactic. Moss characterizes the atmosphere out of which the work evolved as politically-aware, but neither adversarial nor calculated. Zago argues that one of the exhibit's strengths is it's deliberate smallness--that it's more a studio visit, and avoids putting textual frames around the work.
