In her lecture, Margaret Honda elucidates the significant role of the late Jack Brogan as a fabricator who collaborated with key figures in the history of Minimal, Postminimal, and Conceptual art, including Dia collection artists Larry Bell and Robert Irwin, as well as Lynda Benglis and Michael Asher. Shedding light on Brogan’s practice and the ways it has influenced her own artistic development, Honda demystifies the invisible labor and histories within art production since the 1960s.
