This panel will focus on the work of artist Mark Morrisroe (1959–1989), providing an insight into the radical and innovative output of his short career. Known for his performances and photographic work, Morrisroe was germane to the development of the punk scene in Boston in the 1970s, and mid–late 1980s in New York City. This discussion will expand on first comprehensive monograph on the artist’s work published in 2011, edited by Ruf with contributions by Yablonsky, alongside Jack Pierson, an artist from the group of photographers known as the Boston School.
Featuring Beatrix Ruf, Director of the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam and Jack Pierson, Artist. Moderated by Linda Yablonsky, Artforum
