‘Art & Economics 2’, with Claire Bishop, Noa Latham, Julie Martin, Barbara Steveni and Stephen Wright at Apexart on Feb 20th, 2010

This was a roundtable discussion for the end of the ‘Incidental Person’ exhibition curated by Antony Hudek at Apexart in February 2010.

It is probably one of the only documents of Barbara Steveni (Artist Placement Group) and Julie Martin (Experiments in Art and Technology) speaking about their commonalities and differences at the same event. This event includes the critic Claire Bishop who wrote about APG for her book ‘Artificial Hells”. If you would like to know more about this exhibition go to the link below.
