About the artists
Anna Craycroft (New York) has developed a body of work that draws analogies between early child pedagogy and cultural production. Every question she asks has to do with being an artist, or being an artwork: what for, how, and why? Her sculptural installations, workshops, and lectures, as well as collaborations with artists and other experts, combine archival information with the creation of platforms that emphasize art as a vehicle to create original knowledge – most notably C’Mon Language PICA, Portland (2013),Subject of Learning/Object of Study Blanton Museum of Art, Austin (2010). She has received numerous commissions for public sculptures (Art in General, Socrates Sculpture Park, NYC; Lower Manhattan Cultural Center, NYC; Den Haag Sculptuur, the Hague, Netherlands). Craycroft also teaches, and will be faculty at CalArts in spring 2015. She is represented by Tracy Williams Ltd gallery in NYC.
Marc Vives’s (Barcelona & San Sebastián) practice comprises performance, group sessions and installations. Vives brings together disparate fields of popular and mainstream culture to prompt novel connections and collective action. He often designs radical spatial situations that invert regular roles or structures of authority. In particular, he focuses on questions surrounding artistic production and practice—such as his work with YProductions, Hamaca, Por La Vena. He recently participated in a collective project at the Tàpies Foundation (Barcelona). As part of the duo Bestué/Vives (2000-2012), he has presented work at the Venice Biennale (2009), at Playground festival, Belgium (2010) and a performance in Times Square, New York with Creative Time (2010). Vives is currently the curator at Nau Estruch in Sabadell (Spain). The Wilson Exercises is their first project together.
Rivet is Sarah Demeuse and Manuela Moscoso, with other collaborators. They make exhibitions and publications, and hold occasional reading groups and conference calls. Some are more public than others, yet all are conceptually connected. Rivet has focused on notions such as deployment, circulation, and resonance but is equally concerned with curatorial frameworks and working methods. Having landed in places such as Belgium, Ecuador, Beirut, New York, São Paulo and Berlin, Rivet’s permanent residence is at http://rivet-rivet.net
