Office Hours with K8 Hardy
Oct 19, 2013

Office Hours are occasions for extended in-person dialogues between artists and their publics. Taking from the academic tradition of “office hours,” participating artists offer scheduled one-on-one meetings to follow up on aspects of their work and further pursue open questions, in a setting apart from the lecture hall or classroom. As an ongoing program, Office Hours fosters reception of artistic interests through enquiry, exchange, and reflection.
Individuals may sign up for one 50-minute meeting by emailing one of the available dates and times listed below to: officehours@laxart.org. All meetings are held at LA><ART. The program is free and open to all publics.

K8 Hardy
K8 Hardy is a New-York-based artist, one of the founders of the queer feminist art collective LTTR and creator of the cult zine fashionfashion. In her work Hardy often uses fashion as a material to sculpt, photograph, and produce performances interchangeably and simultaneously, creating a new genderqueer vision.
Hardy has directed music videos for groups including Le Tigre, Lesbians on Ecstasy, and Men. She has exhibited her work and performed internationally at numerous venues including MoMA PS1 and Artists Space in New York; The Tate Modern, London; Galerie Sonja Jünkers, Munich, Germany; Balice Hertling in Paris; and Dallas Contemporary, Dallas. Her work is included in the permanent collection of the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, and was featured in the Whitney's 2012 Biennial. Hardy's artistic practice spans a variety of genres and media, including video, photography, sculpture and performance, and responds to issues surrounding identity, image commerce, branding, and gender power.
K8 Hardy's participation in Office Hours is realized in collaboration with the USC Roski MA Art and Curatorial Practices in the Public Sphere and MFA programs.
