Research Service

Research Service is the collaborative endeavor of Avi Alpert, Mashinka Firunts, and Danny Snelson. Our projects propose that scholarship is as much a question of aesthetic inquiry as abstract thought. To these ends, we craft unique research initiatives around discrete subjects, on assignment. This practice stresses the communal nature of knowledge production, positioning audiences as nodes within events and creating a heightened affective situation for information transmission. Recent projects have been presented at the Palais de Tokyo (Paris), Judson Church (New York), Drawing Center (New York), and the Institute of Contemporary Art (Philadelphia).
