Art and Practice is a series of discussion-based seminars aimed at creating a space where emerging and experienced artists can explore challenges and possibilities in building and sustaining a creative practice.
Artists Michael Rakowitz and Aaron Hughes have collaborated on Rakowitz’s ongoing project Enemy Kitchen, inviting Iraqi veterans to cook and eat Iraqi dishes together and continue to be in dialog around notions of war and identity as it relates to their work. Their session will explore the ideas of survival in practice.
