People’s Conference with Jens Hoffman and Harrel Fletcher



The People’s Biennial, which was on view at Haverford College, asked questions about display, structures of support, regionalism, and under-recognized artists. This day-long conversation proposed a question in two parts: How can one contextualize and display art that exists outside the norms of the mainstream art world in an innovative manner, and how can structures of display transform into ongoing systems of support for artists?

Participants included Jens Hoffman, Harrell Fletcher, Nato Thompson, Andrew Suggs, Astria Suparak, Christopher Cook, Peter Nesbett, Julien Robson, Tom Finkelpearl, J. Morgan Puett, Transformazium, John Ollman, Paula Marincola, and John Muse.
