A special Endowed Lecture by Molly S. Nesbit, Professor of Art, Vassar College. The question of the function of the work of art has only deepened over the past century as both the museum and the commercial art market have sought to structure its purpose exclusively. There were always other mise-en-scène. With Day’s End at Pier 55 in New York City, Gordon Matta-Clark began a trajectory which brought his own well-informed political thinking into contact with a group of young Autonomisti in Sesto San Giovanni and led him to imagine the work of art purely as an engine of radical consciousness.
