Art Work

Art Work

In support of Temporary Services’ recent newspaper project Art Work: a national conversation about art, labor and economics,  I’ve created the beginnings of an “audio book” version, starting with one of my favorite texts in the publication. I then asked artist Sam Gould to record one of his choosing. You can download them both here. I’ll extend the invitation to anyone who might like to audio record a text from the newspaper, to be added to this post. You can download the newspaper in full here.
