Spring 2013

Muntadas: Entre/Between
Tuesday, January 28, 7pm in the Gallery, 4East
On the Mediascape
Traverse Muntadas’ vision of the mediascape with the artist’s long-time associate, art historian and critic Robert Atkins. Unlike art characterized by conventional notions of form or pleasure, the work in Entre/Between is the outcome of research and pedagogically oriented practices. Like the physicist who studies timeless and universal physical forces, Muntadas examines the principal force determining contemporary consciousness: the media.
Robert Atkins is a UC Berkeley-trained art historian and a former columnist for the Village Voice. He is the author of such books as ArtSpeak: A Guide to Contemporary Ideas, Movements, and Buzzwords;... From Media to Metaphor: Art About AIDS and, most recently, Censoring Culture: Contemporary Threats to Free Expression. He has organized exhibitions at far flung venues from Sao Paulo to New York, and is a Research Associate at Carnegie Mellon’s STUDIO for Creative Inquiry. ...Learn more at:

John Kelsey, January 8th 6pm. Lasserre Building Room 104, 6333 Memorial Rd. UBC
On January 8, Kelsey will discuss a broad range of issues in contemporary artistic practice in conversation with visual art faculty member Gareth James.
Kelsey's engagement with contemporary art has taken many forms. Indeed, the list of plausible names and functions that have attached themselves to John Kelsey's practice (not to mention adjectives such as "prestigious," "critical," "influential" and so on) is a long one.
