Artist Talk: Stephanie Syjuco
Jun 26 @ 6:30 pm – 7:30 pm
Artist Talk: Stephanie Syjuco

Stephanie Syjuco, Artist and Assistant Professor in Sculpture at the University of California at Berkeley

Stephanie Syjuco joins us for a talk as part of the installation of her work NotMoMA,  the first social-practice artwork to enter the Museum’s permanent collection and currently on view in Marvels. In her wider practice, Syjuco creates large-scale spectacles of collected cultural objects, cumulative archives, and temporary vending installations, often with an active public component that invites viewers to directly participate as producers or distributors. Using collaborative cocreation, her projects leverage open-source systems, shareware logic, and flows of capital, in order to investigate issues of economies and empire. This has included starting a global collaborative project with crochet crafters to counterfeit high-end consumer goods, presenting parasitic art-counterfeiting events, and developing alternative vending economies. Her work was recently included in “New Photography: Being” at the Museum of Modern Art, New York (March 2018) and “Public Knowledge,” at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (2018).

Public programs for We.Construct.Marvels.Between.Monuments. are presented in partnership with c3:initiative.
