Luis Camnitzer is a German-born Uruguayan artist and writer who moved to New York in 1964. He was at the vanguard of 1960s Conceptualism, working primarily in printmaking, sculpture, and installations. Camnitzer’s artwork explores subjects such as social injustice, repression, and institutional critique. His humorous, biting, and often politically charged use of language as art medium has distinguished his practice for over four decades.

This event is part of programming for reForm, a project by Pepón Osorio which responds to the 2013 budget-related closure of Fairhill School in North Philadelphia. Created in collaboration with former Fairhill students, families, and teachers, and Temple Contemporary.

Major support for reForm has been provided by The Pew Center for Arts & Heritage, with additional support from the Surdna Foundation.
