Please join us for an artist talk with Michael Mandiberg in his exhibition FDIC Insured, moderated by Tina Rivers Ryan.
FDIC Insured is a memorial to banks that have failed since the 2008 financial crisis. For 8 years, Mandiberg has been saving the logos of every single failed US bank, and burning them into cast off financial books with a laser cutter. There are now 527 of them, arranged in chronological order starting with the notorious first wave of bank failures that triggered the crisis.
FDIC Insured opened on Thursday September 15, the anniversary of the Lehman Brothers bankruptcy, and runs through Christmas bonus season.
