Sean Duffy,
2004

Sean Duffy's work stems from his intrigue into the phenomenon of repetition, recycling, sampling, and the cyclical reoccurrence of trends in pop-culture and art. These intrigues support Duffy’s work that seem to ceaselessly test the line drawn between the original and the copy, between the real-deal and the knock-off, and the “sense of detachment that occurs each time something is repeated or recycled.” Recent solo exhibitions have been mounted at such venues as the Susanne Vielmetter Berlin Projects, Berlin, Germany; Luckman Fine Arts Complex, California State University, Los Angeles; California 101 Building, San Francisco; Susanne Vielmetter Los Angeles Projects, Culver City, California. His work has been included in numerous group exhibitions such as: Greetings from the American Dream, Riverside Art Museum, Riverside, California; Realm of the Senses, James Cohan Gallery, New York; California Biennial, Orange County Museum of Art, Newport Beach, California; Black Belt, Studio Museum, Harlem; and Remix/Experimenter, Museum of Modern Art, San Salvador.

Post Post Studio,
2005

Reconsidering Sites of Artistic Production & Intervention. Panelists: Amy Adler, Conrad Bakker, Michelle Grabner, Gareth James & Dave McKenzie; moderated by Lane Relyea. Often readymade and site-specific, produced on the grounds of and in collaboration with some sponsoring institution, post-studio has become such a dominant approach that questions have been leveled at its presumed status as inherently critical and progressive. Has post-studio art developed too complimentary a relationship with a much expanded institutional art world, replacing criticality with affirmation? Is it time to rethink the strategic possibilities of the studio, as holding out the potential for reclaiming some critical vantage? Could it be that such critical distance only owes to the fact that the studio has been rendered increasingly obsolete, now that value and authority reside more in information than in objects, in circulations than in sites, and now that production and exhibition, private and public no longer correspond to physical spaces and states but are increasingly defined within disembodied, virtual realms? Have we entered a post-post-studio age?
