Description

Julia Weist is the only licensed private investigator in New York whose work is in the collection of the Museum of Modern Art. The New York Department of State recently determined that her visual art practice is investigative enough that it is legally equivalent to the skills used by fire marshals and corporate fraud analysts. In this interactive lecture, Weist and her collaborator Shannon Mattern will explore the limits of creative research and the evidentiary potential of art.
