John Freyer Visits the Dodd Bringing Social Practice and Fresh Hot Coffee

"John Freyer wants to speak with you...over a jar of water, a cup of coffee, or a plate of spaghetti. And whether or not you are aware of it (it’s fine with him either way), he regards your time together as both an offering and an artwork. Freyer’s particular blending of conversation and small acts of kindness might seem like a curious approach to art-making, but it is rooted in several traditions, drawn from inside and outside of contemporary art.”  —Lauren Ross, Curator
