About This Video


ARTSpeak: Bruce High Quality Foundation


The ARTSpeak lecture series presents the Bruce High Quality Foundation, a group of anonymous artists who use performance and other interventions to critique the institutions of the art world. They have exhibited in the Whitney Biennial, the Lyon Biennale, Lever House in New York, and had their first retrospective at the Brooklyn Museum in 2013. Their free school, the Bruce High Quality Foundation University, offers tuition-free courses during fall and spring semesters, hosts public programs and exhibitions year-round, and operates cost-free artist studio residency programs.
ARTSpeak 2015-2016, presented by the departments of Fine Arts and the History of Art, includes a series of lectures on the theme the Obstacle Race. The theme explores the difficulties artists face in today’s urban economic environment and the means of overcoming them. This series is open to the FIT community and public. Other ARTSpeak events this academic year include student visits to artist studios, a panel discussion, and an exhibition of work by Fine Arts majors, and texts by AHMP majors in the FIT Library.
This event has been made possible in part through funding by the FIT Student-Faculty Corporation, the School of Art and Design, and the School of Liberal Arts.
