Art in the Long View at Lunchtime
In conversation with artists and MoMA Lecturers, explore long-term, process-based art and its impact on the experience of art. While many artists establish concrete goals, the processes we are interested in examining may span the lifetime of the artist, require ongoing participation or discussion, and be linked more to research and exploration than to a pre-established plan. Bring your lunch and discover how these challenges to the constraints of time and the expectations of final product and finality force viewers and participants to reconsider the role of art in society. This series serves as an incubator of ideas in advance of our upcoming Contemporary Art Forum on May 2 and 3.

Carol Padberg, a former fellow at Mildred’s Lane, is joined by her teenage daughter Natalie Padberg Bartoo and son Daniel Padberg Bartoo to distribute a letterpress handbill “familiefesto” to guests at the MoMA Studio. Their family art and research endeavor, The Garden Redux, was influenced by the vortex of art and life exploration, domestic consideration, ecological awareness, and family/community relationships that are at the core of Mildred’s Lane. Following the reading and distribution of the familiefesto, the speakers discuss The Garden Redux, a cross-country mobile agricultural artwork.

In conjunction with the exhibition MoMA Studio: Common Senses
