This week: First we had James Elkins and the raiders of the lost ark, then James Elkins and the temple of doom, next James Elkins and the last crusade….now.
James Elkins and the crystal something-or-other.
No, no, But James Elkins is back to talk with Duncan about the Stone Summer Theory Institute, the Art Phd. and why your sorry ass is going to be in school forever.
Stone Summer Theory Institute at SAIC: What Is an Image?
From July 13-19, the second annual Stone Summer Theory Institute at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago will present a forum for some of the world’s foremost art theoreticians to address unsolved issues in the field.
This year’s Institute is focused on three fundamental questions: What is the nature of the visual? What are images? What are pictures?
A combination of public events and private discussions, the Summer Theory Institute invites fifteen young scholars to explore issues in art conceptualization with renowned international scholars, artists, and authors, this year including Gottfried Boehm, W.J.T. Mitchell, Jacqueline Lichtenstein, and Marie-Jose Mondzain.
ALSO: WEST COAST PEOPLE READ AND OBEY!
In conjunction with “Open for Business”, Brian and Patrica will interview René de Guzman live in public at Triple Base Gallery on Thursday, July 10th at 5:00 PM. The raw interview will then be posted to the site as that week’s show.
René de Guzman is the senior curator of art at the Oakland Museum of California. Previously, he was the director of visual arts at San Francisco’s Yerba Buena Center for the Arts (YBCA).
Outside the Loop Radio which reportedly broadcasts from it’s (for our benefit) 100-watt artsy-fartsy radio station took time to interview Richard and DMac and ask about the birth and direction of Bad at Sports. If you want to listen to the entire episode click here for the direct link.
Duncan & Richard appear at 6 min 20 seconds into the show. Richard geeks out over audio tech, Duncan tells the back story with eloquence. They both have a jaw drop moment when the hosts ask how you could get hate mail doing a art audio program.
Check it out.
First, some generally embarrassing banter, Duncan discusses his dance career, we talk about Richard’s terminal nerd-dom, and eventually introduce the show. Brian and Richard have announcements
Second, Terri and Serena interview artist Mary Rachel Fanning about her many and varied projects.
Third, Duncan talks to Diane Grams about her book “Entering Cultural Communities: Diversity and Change in the Nonprofit Arts”.
Next, more silliness in the closing, and then, you sit and wait until next Sunday where we send more wackiness your way. [Read more]
HEY Friends! Just a quick HELLO! and an announcement that I have posted photos online of my solo exhibition,
Green Lantern Gallery in Chicago.
1511 N Milwaukee. (Sat – Wicker Park) til June 28th.
If you are in town and need a break, go visit the space and say hi to Caroline from me.
Cheers friends, and I look forward to seeing you all in LA for July – October. Stuart Keeler and I will be attending the RAID Projects residency and plan to whip up some fantastic projects. Also, read about our project at Gallery 400 in the current issue of Sculpture Magazine.
This week Duncan and Richard are joined by guest host Tony Tasset to talk to Pamela Fraser and Randall Szott about their work, arguing and their project he said-she said.
From their web site: http://hesaid-shesaid.us
he said-she said is an exhibition and event series held in the home of Pamela Fraser and Randall Szott. They will take turns presenting what amounts to an ongoing conversation about art and culture – Ms. Fraser presenting art and artists, and Mr. Szott sharing the activities of people who work in other contexts. Together they hope to offer up a fun and thoughtful take on current ideas in art and life.
Richard makes Duncan feel bad. Much mirth is had by all.
