From F.T. Marinetti, the founder of the Italian Futurist movement in 1909, to Andy Warhol in the 1960s, many artists have reveled in the promotion of their own work, linking it to marketing and commerce. Others, however, resist or challenge this dynamic by instead addressing issues surrounding art and social exchange. In this program, artists Christine Hill and Rirkrit Tiravanija discuss how they create artworks for an alternative "economy." Moderated by Glenn D. Lowry, director of The Museum of Modern Art.
