Andrea Fraser Speaks!

As part of the School of the Art Institute’s Right to Believe Series, Andrea Fraser lectured as the first voice. Bordering on a straightforward artist’s slide jam – which, unfortunately, is the type of lecture many artists perform, believing that it might be unbiased or distance themselves from the work, however boring the lecture in itself tends to be – and characterization of herself where Fraser slides in and out of the museum guide that she plays in “Museum Highlights.” This balance between real and unreal, subconscious and conscious states, became rifted during the question and answer series when Fraser started crying.

A performance? Probably. However, this is what to expect from an artist who controls her reception to a demanding degree.
