Boris's tidbits Friday 2/25/2011

9 a.m. Instead of your morning read, consider the quote in the current issue of frieze. Peter Schjeldahl cites an example of writing in Wallace Stevens and makes a case for the professional critic. Enjoy a chuckle.

"Attention Artists! Perhaps you employ language in your work. You may be highly literate. But you don't have to say what your art means or even is about. Furthermore, don't do that. It's my job. You make the stuff. Let critics talk about it. Making is superior to talking, so you have the better end of the deal."

11 a.m. I will be visiting Art History (Ratliff) course today. My contribution will be on the topic of "sources" in studio work, and time permitting, in teaching painting, too. Please join me for discussion.

12 noon. My AWW exhibition is to be deinstalled today (stop by for a one more glimpse if you can) I plan to oversee the process throughout the day.

1 p.m. In ART455, Senior Project will meet to discuss their latest work, writings and overall progress. If possible some work may be on display over the weekend. Look for it around the building.

6 p.m. The Lexington Art League hosts the Fifth Third Bank 4th Friday reception. Fifth Third Bank 4th Friday is on February 25, 2011 from 6p - 9p at LAL @ Loudoun House. Admission is free for members and $7 for potential members. LAL Project Space Fountain: A Place for Tears run now thru March 13, 2011.
