Sundays at PARMER ­– food, drinks, Wikipedia
464 Quincy Street Brooklyn NY 11221

On March 16 the list of new Wikipedia contributions, expansions and edits that we will be working on draws from participants in this year’s Whitney Biennial that influence and inform Lindsay Benedict’s practice. We will be adding a page for A.L. Steiner who describes her installation-based work in this year’s Biennial—More Real Than Reality Itself (2014)–as “a conduit to viewing other subjective histories” which has become “a platform for questioning intentionality and the relationship [Stiener has] to documentary or archival forms–a fragile and precarious place for both the object and subject.” We will also add to the existing entry for Chris Kraus who “sees her work as providing spaces where women designate their own subjective positions.” Currently Kraus’ page focuses soley on her writing and editorial work–we will be adding the contributions she has made as a director over the past 33 years and her curatorial projects since 996.We will also work on proposed Wikipedia entries from the past five weeks Semiotext(e), Miguel Gutierrez , Will Rawls, Judith Butler, Murray Guy, Sarah Cain, Letitia Spangler, Julia Brown, Luce Irigaray, Dance Gang, Sharon Van Etten, Kaja Silverman, Trinh T. Minh-Ha, Lydia Bell, Daniella Isamit Morales, Yve Laris Cohen, Åsa Elzén, Anne Wagner, Ulrike Müller and Trinie Dalton.

Sundays at PARMER is a programming component of Lindsay Benedict’s photo essay Are You There? Yes. Are You There? Yes.(2011) on view at PARMER until April 7, 2014. Over the nine weeks of the exhibition these weekly meetings will draw from a list of the artist’s influences to add new Wikipedia pages and additional content to existing entries. In this way the artist supports the practices that have made hers possible through the community that comes together around the exhibition.  This series of Wikipedia events was inspired by the 2014 Art+Feminism Wikipedia Edit-a-Thon that has since spurred several other such events and communities around the world.
