09.12.2020 | The Artwork in Flux, a Live Q&A | Free

September 12 @ 11:00 am

Categories: Historical, Lecture, Misc, Visual Arts


For the second discussion in this fall’s series “In Conversation,” join Natilee Harren, assistant professor of art history at the University of Houston School of Art, and Meredith Malone, associate curator at the Kemper Art Museum, for a talk about Fluxus, the international avant-garde art movement founded in 1962 with outposts in Europe, Japan, and the United States. The group is perhaps best known for its production of game-like kits called Fluxboxes, multiples in unlimited edition that were assembled beginning in the early 1960s. In our present moment of social isolation and economic uncertainty, Fluxus multiples—portable, interactive, transformable, and affordable—offer a compelling model for rethinking accepted modes of artistic subjectivity, production, and distribution.

The program is free, but registration is required.
