Conversation with Tony Oursler, presented by Dia Art Foundation
17 December 2020
On the occasion of the 25th anniversary of Dia’s Artist Web Projects series as well as the recent restoration of several of those works, Dia presents a series of conversations with artists who have participated in the program. This second event in the series gives focus to Fantastic Prayers (1995), Dia’s first Artist Web Project, by writer Constance DeJong, artist Tony Oursler, and musician/composer Stephen Vitiello.
For this event, DeJong and Oursler share scenes from the Fantastic Prayers CD, which was published in 2000. Rebecca Cleman, executive director of Electronic Arts Intermix, and Karen Kelly, former director of publications at Dia, where she worked on the original Fantastic Prayers project, moderate a conversation with the artists.
