Incident Report: Anthony Graves

Little Assemblies
May 17 – June 21, 2010 at Incident Report, an experimental viewing station for visual projects, 348 Warren St., Hudson.

Anthony Graves, an artist and writer based in Ithaca and Brooklyn and visiting lecturer at Cornell’s College of Architecture, Art and Planning, contributes the current Incident Report: Thinker in the Marketplace contains a silkscreen of excerpted text from Hannah Arendt’s Life of the Mind, and a copy of Richard S. Sloma’s No-Nonsense Planning (1984), two instances of ‘thinking in the marketplace.’ 1989 refers to publication date of Deborah Hoover’s Supporting Yourself as an Artist, as well as a decisive year in the attacks on the NEA. (This was the year the Mapplethorpe exhibition was cancelled at the Corcoran.) The Bad Comrade is a reference to Russian Constructivists’ notion of socialist commodities or objects-as-comrades, ascribed to Aleksandr Rodchenko.
