Clifford Owens was hostile to the meeting, and railed against "the institution" (the philanthropic Rem a Hort Mann Foundation), criticizing it for trying to tell artists what is in their best interest, and criticizing the artists present for being "mediated" by an institution.
We are all for mediation, although Clifford Owens had a show at P.S.1 and did the Studio Museum thing - both are institutions that mediated his performance work.
