Panel Discussion: Fail Better: A Salon on Works-in Progress
Join Joanne Desmond, Kirsten Reynolds and Leika Akiyama for a discussion about artistic experimentation and the role of process and failure in artmaking. How do artists conduct research and development? Can the idea of the temporary, the half-baked, or the "why not" be used as productive strategies for both making and viewing art? Artists are welcome to bring an experiment, work-in-progress or failure along to share their own perspective. This panel discussion is part of the first residency program at the Nave.
