About Laurel Ptak
Laurel Ptak works across curatorial, artistic and pedagogical boundaries to address the social and political contours of art and technology. She has held diverse roles at non-profit art institutions including the Guggenheim Museum (New York City); Aperture Foundation (New York City); Museo Tamayo (Mexico City); Tensta Konsthall (Stockholm); among others. Together with artist Marysia Lewandowska, she is co-editor of the book Undoing Property? which explores artistic practices in relationship to immaterial production, political economy and the commons, published by Sternberg Press in 2013. Ptak’s projects are often collaborative and discursive in nature and have taken up subject matter including alternative economies, debt, feminism, intellectual property and labor. She teaches in the department of Art, Media and Technology at Parsons, The New School in New York City. In 2014 she was appointed Executive Director of Triangle Arts Association in Brooklyn, a more than 30-year-old artist residency program within an international network of arts organizations around the world. She is currently at work transforming it into a revitalized institution that actively rethinks the site of artistic production and wonders what an artist residency can be in the year 2015.
