165 - A Generous Grift w/ Sam Lefebvre
/

Fan favorite Sam Lefebvre’s newest work, the three-part series A Generous Grift for San Francisco-based community art space The Lab, is finally all here! We here at A+L felt the spacetime ripple from the upload and bolted awake in a cold sweat. Taking a magnifying glass to some particularly local, incredibly bold, and somehow publicly available fuckery from Oakland to Houston, Sam’s work expands past the typical conversation we have around how the art world perpetuates wealth for the wealthy, into direct examples of how museums uphold the real estate industry that causes our displacement and upholds the carceral state. All roads lead to tenant organizing, and any road after that you’re gonna have to figure out with your neighbors, in person. Shhhhhhhh🤫

This is (almost) the dawning of the age of Aquarius, how red will that dawn be? OK’s been a little fixated on China, would a new global superpower be beneficial to international communist movements? We try to focus back in the art and labor realm with the 3rd part of the Nika Dubrovsky and David Graeber’s piece for e-flux. How can we build enough power to meaningfully transform the art world as we know it??
