David Muenzer (b. 1987, Pittsburgh, PA) is a New York based artist whose interdisciplinary practice addresses the rapidly changing production and valuation of art and labor in the information age. He has shown in New York, Philadelphia, New Haven, Braddock, Norfolk, and at the Westmoreland Museum of American Art in Greensburg, PA. His most recent project, 14 & 15, was a group exhibition on two floors of unused office space in the Lipstick Building in midtown Manhattan.

British artist Gareth James arrived in New York in 1997 as a student at the Whitney’s Independent Study Program, intending to return to London nine months later. Instead, he was offered an exhibition at Miami’s Wolfsonian and a job with the director of the Whitney program. Jon Kessler then brought James to Columbia University, where in 2005 the young artist was offered the chair of Visual Arts. David Muenzer’s conversation with the artist ranges across James’ interest in low-level criminality, the expressive possibilities of fried wool, and the monthly journal devoted to drawing James founded in 2006 with Sam Lewitt and Cheyney Thompson, which has yet to release a single issue.
