Restraining Order: The Art of Self-Control

When: Jan. 26-Feb. 22 2013

If you're not familiar with the Center for Advanced Hindsight's program of absurdist yet practical critique, come to this reception for their current exhibition, Restraining Order: The Art of Self Control, which is on view through Feb. 22. Director Dan Ariely and curator Catherine Howard invited 25 artists working in a variety of media to participate in a discussion with Ariely about his research into techniques for developing self-control. Artists also did self-control exercises while creating work in response to the research. An alternative to open calls for thematic work, the Center's process is designed (with a modicum of facetiousness) to spur retrospective insight. The free reception runs 6–9 p.m. —Chris Vitiello
