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🤫
Episode 126 Art and Crisis w/ Sam Lefebvre and Lor
Beautiful Bay Area babes Sam Lefebvre and Lor came to town and we had us a glorious struggle session about, what else, the precarious and confusing class positioning of artists. Plus, what should artworkers and activists demand wrt public control of museum endowments and governance? Also, rent boards are HR for land antagonisms for real!!! We even debate post-capitalist horizons and if it’s possible to dissolve the secondary markets. Did I mention Lor is assisting cyborg feminist hero Lynn Hershman Leeson??
