Artist Lecture Series: Stephanie Syjuco

Wednesday, November 6, 2013, 4:00 pm
Stephanie Syjuco creates large-scale spectacles of collected cultural objects, cumulative archives and temporary vending installations, often with an active public component that invites viewers to directly participate as producers or distributors. Working primarily in sculpture and installation, her projects leverage open-source systems, shareware logic and flows of capital, creating frictions between high ideals and everyday materials. Free.
