Ladies and gentlemen, it’s nearly showtime for our 11.3 resident artists.
This Thursday, November 17, from 6-8:30, the works of Frank Benson, Graham Fagen, and Jeff Williams will premiere. As always, the opening is free and open to the public. (If you’re an Artpace Fresh Art First Member, you can stop by our Members-only Lounge.)
The Artists’ Dialogue will be moderated by Russell Ferguson, guest curator and Chair of the Department of Art at the University of California, Los Angeles, and it begins at 7pm.
Because it’s only Monday, the opening is three days away, and chances of an NBA season appear slim-to-none, enjoy the wafts of some Monday Postpourri:
- Miranda Sawyer and Charles Saumarez Smith discuss the museum experience at blockbuster exhibitions. Are hot-ticket shows like the Royal Academy’s 2010 Van Gogh exhibition or this year’s National Gallery’s da Vinci exhibition the best way to enjoy art?
- Artist, curator and editor Julie Ault stopped by for a chat with the Bad at Sports podcast. In 2006, Ault released Felix Gonzalez-Torres, the first comprehensive monograph dedicated to the artist, which includes the essay “Authority Figure” by IAIR 11.3 guest curator Russell Ferguson.
- Hans Ulrich Obrist expresses his admiration for Studs Terkel in an interview with ARTINFO.
- A $1.1 million oops! Martin Kippenberger’s When It Starts Dripping from the Ceiling was damaged at Germany’s Otswall Museum after a cleaning agency employee mistakenly cleaned away the sculpture’s patina she thought was dirt. (pictured at bottom)
