To celebrate the final weekend of the exhibitions A Fragile But Marvelous Life and Make every show like it’s your last, the AAM presents a daylong series of performances and interventions.
Ryan Gander: Earnest Hawker
10 AM–5 PM
Channeling Oscar Wilde’s pun of the “earnest Ernest,” Ryan Gander’s Earnest Hawker is a once-successful artist whose name suggests the cheerful antagonism and current status of his character: he attends gallery events for all the right and wrong reasons (and perhaps partly just for the promise of free drinks). Engaging the general public in conversation, Hawker eventually pushes a sale on his unsuspecting listeners. Mingling throughout the day’s events and exhibitions, Gander’s Hawker inhabits countless iterations of the artist’s fictional future self.
