An SBMA Curator's Choice presenter, Lane Relyea explores the effects of communication networks on artistic practice and its contexts in his book Your Everyday Art World. Artists in cities everywhere are increasingly turning their attention from object making to public conversation. Instead of depending on traditional forms of funding, they are increasingly crowd-sourcing and ad-libbing galleries and events for colleagues to meet and stay informed. Consequently, the “white cube system” - traditionally centered around the studio, gallery, and museum - is being displaced by one focused on collaboration, professionalism, and social practice. Lane Relyea discusses this current shift in contemporary art towards more democratic forms of production.
