Where I Work: In the Studio With Justine Cooper

In a special joint event with ArtAsiaPacific Magazine (AAP) Australian artist Justine Cooper opens the doors to her Brooklyn studio for a candid talk about her practice over the last decade; and discusses the role of the artist’s studio as a laboratory for artistic production and spectacle with Eyebeam's Executive Director Amanda McDonald Crowley.

This event is strictly RSVP due to limited capacity so please email your interest in attending to with "studio visit" in the subject box.

This event is part of a series organised by Daneyal Mahmood Gallery, "Science, Fiction and Visual Art," a compact three-day free public program of lively talks and presentations for members of the public, students, emerging artists, critics and curators to coincide with Justine Cooper's solo exhibition "Living in Sim," currently on view at Daneyal Mahmood Gallery until 31 December 2009.

The program is curated by Sara Raza (London based independent curator, writer and co-editor ArtAsiaPacific Magazine) and will run from December 10-12.

Justine Cooper is best known for her intelligent and witty approach to investigating the relationship between the visual arts, contemporary sciences, medicine and public space and time. Her practice has probed the order and classification of science and human interaction by exploring issues of medical consumerism, social dispensing and dependency and the power dynamics that reside between medical institutions and the public.  On the occasion of her current exhibition “Living in Sim,” Cooper talks about her intriguing new exhibition with Sara Raza
