Teaching Artists or art creating Teacher – what is profession and what dilettantism?
“Duane McDiarmid builds performative events in remote landscape sites. Lori Esposito and Duane have worked collaboratively on a number of occasions, most notably the “Where the fruits of Labor Reside”, a community participatory collaboration. Lori’s work was chosen for the cover of International Science Journal Cortex as a representation of synaesthesia. Her works on paper and paintings have been exhibited across the United States.”
Lori Esposito, Assistant Professor of Drawing at the Rhode Island School of Design and Duane McDiarmid, Associate Professor and Chair of Sculpture and Expanded Practice at the Ohio University, give an insight into their work as artist of the recent years.
In their dual role as Artists and Teachers Lori and Duane represend a modern form of self-understanding of the artist. The limitations of the terms Profession and Dilettantism thereby should be redefined.
