Events
  • In his lecture, Laurence Rickels reenters the exchange between Walter Benjamin and Alexander Mette, which led to Mette’s review of Ursprung des deutschen Trauerspiels in Imago and brought Benjamin to consider the clinical picture of schizophrenia, the topic of Mette’s dissertation-book, which he in turn reviewed.

  • Artist Anna Craycroft, of the current exhibition Tuning the Room in Ben Maltz Gallery, in discussion with artist and curator Micah Silver.

  • Emily Thorpe's art work addresses the twisting formation of memory through spatial relations and moments of domesticity. She will be presenting a solo exhibition for her Graduate Thesis at The Bolsky Gallery, Otis College of Art & Design, on view February 20 to February 25, 2017. There will be a closing reception on Saturday, February 25, 6-9pm.

  • You can easily spot The Little Friends of Printmaking in a crowd—their inky hands and clothes are a dead giveaway. Their work is just as distinctive. JW & Melissa Buchanan first made a name for themselves through their silkscreened concert posters, but soon branched out into further fields, designing fancy junk for whoever would pay them money. In addition to their work as illustrators and designers, they've continued their fine art pursuits through exhibitions, lectures, and artists’ residencies, spreading the gospel of silkscreen to anyone inclined to listen.

  • "In publishers’ terms, Shock and Awe – a hefty, intellectual book about glam rock – is timely." - Jude Rogers, The Guardian

Patrick Nickell: 2010-11 Faculty Development Grant Report


Excerpt:

In spring of 2011 I received a Faculty Development Grant. My request for funds for this grant application was to visit the Rodin Museum in Paris and Meudon, France. These two locations contain Rodin’s original plaster sculptures, sketches, studies, maquette’s and archives. Rodin's inspiration for my newer body of work is conceptual and technical. This grant allowed me to view first hand Rodin’s extensive and vast knowledge of plaster and the conceptual underpinnings of his bold approach that reveal the inner psychology of the human figure. The grant request was for a total of four viewing days (not including travel days) two days for each museum.
