The Artist's Institute in New York dedicates each six-month season to a single artist, whose work becomes the occasion for a series of exhibitions, public programs and graduate seminars with contemporary thinkers in art, music, film, literature, science, art history, philosophy and other creative pursuits. The first six seasons, which took place between 2010 and 2013, were dedicated to artists Robert Filliou, Jo Baer, Jimmie Durham, Rosemarie Trockel, Haim Steinbach and Thomas Bayrle. In each context, the Institute convened private and public forums to reflect on each artist by reading relevant texts, displaying artworks and programming related events. Today We Should Be Thinking About Jo Baer, Thomas Baylre, Jimmie Durham, Robert Filliou, Haim Steinbach, and Rosemarie Trockel compiles these reflections and documents the legacies and contemporary conversations that surround these artists today.
