SOCIAL MALPRACTICE

Social Malpractice: A Practical Guide to Making Socially Irresponsible Work, 2009

60 pages, staple-bound

From Printed Matter's website: Sean Joseph Partick Carney's hilarious and frighteningly astute guide to navigating the contemporary art scene offers chapters on: getting grant money ("Everybody knows that it's like a jillion times easier to get grant money if you're gay"); securing a place in a graduate program by applying as a social practice artist ("It's like taking all the best parts about a BFA - drinking beer with friends, watching movies, experimenting with drugs, having unproductive, oblique political conversations - and just running fucking wild"); and defending socially irresponsible art work ("Don't").

Originally exhibited at Blue Humor curated by Victor Maldonado at Milepost 5 in Portland, OR.
