Vito Acconci Artist Lecture at New York Studio School

Vito Acconci presented From Words Through Action to Architecture, a discussion on the evolution of his artistic career.

A compelling narration through his early performance and body work of the 1970s and how his desire to move his art beyond self reflective works into a greater reactive realm escalated his creative oeuvre towards architecture and public art.

He founded Acconci Studio, where he and his team have created some remarkable projects which resonante the ideas of the interjection of private within public space, the boundaries of the body, the fluid spaces that wave and ripple into one and other in this inverted möibus waves.

Favorites included Bad Drema House at MIT, and Mur Island in Graz, Austria.
