Jan Tichy in Conversation With Jason Lazarus and Faheem Majeed

Exhibiting artist Jan Tichy, along with artists and curators Jason Lazarus and Faheem Majeed will have a conversation on artistic practices that deal with collecting and collections.



Faheem Majeed is an artist, curator, and community facilitator. He blends these experiences to create works that focus on institutional critique and exhibitions that leverage collaboration to engage his immediate community, and the broader community, in meaningful dialogue. From 2005–11, Majeed served as Executive Director and Curator for the South Side Community Art Center.



Jason Lazarus’s conceptual artworks consider the role of the artist, image, and archive. Several of his bodies of work utilize photographs found in resale shops, pilfered from photomats, or given to him by friends and strangers. For his project and archive Too Hard to Keep, Lazarus put out an open call via the internet for images whose owners found them too painful to keep, or destroy.



Jan Tichy works at the intersection of video, sculpture, architecture, sound and photography; many of his works combine these elements. Several of Tichy’s projects, like the exhibition 1979:1 —2012:21: Jan Tichy Works with the MoCP Collection, involve collaborations with museums including the Wadsworth Atheneum, Hartford CT; and the Spertus Institute of Jewish Studies, Chicago, where Tichy engages and creates works inspired by the institutions’ collections, histories, and practices.
