Space is limited; reservations are required. In conjunction with the exhibition Charlotte Posenenske: Work in Progress, Dia presents at Dia:Beacon a month of open discussions, which take Posenenske’s work as a point of departure. Entrusting audiences with the creation of new artworks through the arrangement of her modular sculptures, the artist made critical contributions to the development of serial, site-specific, and participatory practices. In 1968, frustrated by the systemic divide between the art world and the working class, she began studying sociology and repositioned her practice as an advisor in support of labor unions. These Beacon-based sessions invite participants to contribute to a sustained conversation about the labor of making and the spaces in which this unfolds. Session leaders include artists Rey Akdogan and Alan Ruiz, sociologist and labor scholar Stephanie Luce, and architect Diana Mangaser. Rey Akdogan is a German-born artist based in New York City. By employing materials ubiquitous in our environment, Akdogan resignifies and subverts their use value. Her interest in standards as the anonymous-yet-familiar infrastructure of our everyday signals her conceptual proximity to Charlotte Posenenske.In 2013 the artist stripped the floor of her Lower East Side galleryof its tiling before installing a configuration of Posenenske’s Vierkantrohre Serie D (Square Tubes Series D, 1967– ). Akdogan completed the Whitney Independent Study Program in 2004 after receiving her MA in 2001 from Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design in London. Recent one-person exhibitions of her work have been shown at Hannah Hoffman Gallery in Los Angeles (2017), Miguel Abreu Gallery in New York City (2017), Radio Athènes in Athens (2016), and MoMA PS1 in New York City (2012).  Stephanie Luce is professor of labor studies and sociology at City University of New York. She received her BA from the University of California, Davis, and both her MA in industrial relations and PhD in sociology from the University of Wisconsin, Madison. Known for her research on living-wage campaigns and social movements, she is the author of Fighting for a Living Wage (2004). Her current research focuses on globalization and labor standards, labor-community coalitions, and regional labor markets. Her most recent book is Labor Movements: Global Perspectives (2014). Diana Mangaser is an artist, architect, and educator. She received her MA in architecture from Rhode Island School of Design and her BA in architecture from the University of California, Berkeley. Based in Newburgh, New York, she leads the creative practice Y S D M with Yoshihiro Sergel and directs the creative initiative Artist-in-Vacancy with the Newburgh Community Land Bank. Mangaser’s own practice explores communally constructed spaces, recalling the radical approach to art making set forth by Charlotte Posenenske. An artist educator at Dia:Beacon, Mangaser’s spring curriculum is shaped by the exhibition Charlotte Posenenske: Work in Progress. During this Arts Education Program,Dia’s Learning Lab and classrooms function as sites for students to collaboratively build a space wherein elements such as walls and columns are mutable forms to be constructed, moved, and transformed. Alan Ruiz is an artist and writer based in New York City, who explores the way space is produced as both material and ideology. He received an MFA from Yale University in New Haven, Connecticut, and participated in the Whitney Independent Study Program in New York. His work has been shown at the Bronx Museum of the Arts, Kitchen, Queens Museum, and Storefront for Art and Architecture, among other New York institutions. He has been an artist-in-residence at Abrons Arts Center, the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council, and the Whitne’s Youth Insights program, and his writing has been featured in BOMB Magazine, Millennium Film Journal, andWomen & Performance, among others. Ruiz teaches at Pratt Institute and the New School.     Dia:Beacon FALSE DD/MM/YYYY FREQ=DAILY; Posenenske Sessions
