Live Stage: Thrilling Wonder Stories 3 [online]

Thrilling Wonder Stories 3 — a transatlantic ideas festival featuring the finest in speculative design and spatial fiction :: October 28, 2011; 12:00 – 10:00 pm (London Time) :: Architectural Association, London, and Studio-X NYC + Follow online with our livestream and the Twitter feed (hashtag #tws3).

We have always regaled ourselves with speculative stories of a day yet to come. In these polemic visions we furnish the fictional spaces of tomorrow with objects and ideas that at the same time chronicle the contradictions, inconsistencies, flaws and frailties of the everyday. Slipping suggestively between the real and the imagined these narratives offer a distanced view from which to survey the consequences of various social, environmental and technological scenarios.

Live Stage: The Assignment Book [us NYC]

The Assignment Book: A project by Luis Camnitzer :: September 21 – October 16, 2011 :: Opening: September 21; 6:30 – 9:00 pm :: Aronson Galleries, Sheila C. Johnson Design Center, Parsons, The New School for Design, 66 5th Ave @ 13th Street, New York City.

In The Assignment Book I am trying to bridge the distance between artist and viewer, and start a dialogue and collective research instead of merely communicating by way of a monologue. I would like to share unresolved and sometimes ridiculous conundrums and questions that hopefully lead to critical inter- and multidisciplinary thinking, and unleash similar but collectively generated stimuli. Not unlike the blog format, answers and suggestions should enter the exhibition space so that the stage is shared with the visitors, leading to deinsitutionalized learning: Learning Without a School. In this I abandon the traditional declarative stance of the artist/teacher. Being accountable for how I deal with the assignments I become an unprotected artist/learner.” – Luis Camnitzer Continue reading

Total Art Journal

Total Art Journal is a peer-reviewed journal that seeks to establish a dynamic forum for interdisciplinary discourse grounded in the arts. We are committed to nurturing new ways of understanding and interrogating work that crosses the practice-theory lines endemic to traditional academic and artistic worlds.

The journal takes its name from Alan Kaprow’s 1958 essay, “Notes on the Creation of a Total Art,” and sees performance, understood as a broad category of analysis, as central to the post-disciplinarity at stake in the concept of a Kaprowian “Total Art.” Grounded in local attention, performance here names an approach rather than a discrete artistic practice — an approach that brings with it new ways of doing work at the intersections of art/ life, theory/ practice, and academia/ activism.
