ISCP Talk
August 18, 2020, 4–4:45pm

Artists at Work: New Red Order hosted by Culture Pass

Artists at Work: New Red Order is a virtual event hosted by Culture Pass, a collaborative program coordinated by Brooklyn Public Library, Queens Public Library and The New York Public Library.

Registration is required here.

Artists at Work talks are public presentations by visual artists who are currently in residence at the International Studio & Curatorial Program. The artists will offer insight into their practices, followed by Q&A sessions with attendees.

The speakers for Artists at Work will be Adam Khalil, Zack Khalil and Jackson Polys, who are core contributors to the public secret society known as New Red Order (NRO). They work with an interdisciplinary network of informants to co-produce video, performance, and installation works. Their projects confront settler colonial tendencies and obstacles to Indigenous growth and agency. NRO has exhibited work at the Whitney Biennial 2019; Toronto Biennial 2019; and Tate Modern, London, among other institutions. Their first museum solo exhibition opens soon at Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit.

This program is supported, in part, by Hartfield Foundation; National Endowment for the Arts; New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, in partnership with the City Council; New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature; Shelly & Donald Rubin Foundation; Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF); and VIA Art Fund.
