Agnieszka Kurant, The End of Signature, 2015

A conversation between Jason Farago, Even’s editor, and Agnieszka Kurant, a young Polish artist featured in Issue 2 of the magazine. Kurant is preparing for her forthcoming exhibition at the Contemporary Center for Art in Tel Aviv after presenting a commissioned work at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York, in 2015. Together, Farago and Kurant will discuss the economics of labor — not in the art world, but around it.

Martine Syms, an artist and "conceptual entrepreneur," whose videos, images, performances and texts examine questions of representation of race and gender, currently has an exhibition at ICA London, her first major institutional solo show, and will be included in the Hammer Museums's upcoming "Made in LA". She is the subject of a feature in the current issue of Flash Art, written by the magazine's Associate Editor Eli Diner. The two will sit down to discuss matters of memory and meditation.
