"I'll be rich in five years. It will not be due to any big change on my part. It'll be you. You'll finally get me." This declaration is just one of thousands of provocative thoughts, claims, confessions and sentiments that Sean Landers has poured into his art since the early 1990s, when he first exhibited his allover paintings. With its singular combination of elation, self-exposure, boastfulness and self-loathing, Landers' artistic output - which also includes representational paintings and sculpture - examines the joys and pitfalls of creative expression, and the definition of artistic success.

Sean Landers was born in 1962 in Palmer, Massachusetts, and lives and works in New York.

Now in its twelfth year, The Public Art Fund has produced this ongoing lecture series of presentations and discussions by some of today's most influential artists, critics, and curators, inlcuding Takashi Murakami, Jeff Koons, Rachel Whiteread, Matthew Barney, Gabirel Orozco, Pipilotti Rist, Tony Oursler, Catherine David, Kasper Konig, Okwui Enwezor, and Lynne Cook.
