Inside Story: A Conversation with Canadian Art Editor Richard Rhodes and Artists Dana Claxton, Sky Glabush and Yam Lau, starting at 11am
“Inside Story” is another way of saying that there is more than meets the eye. This tabloid terminology signals the promise of more—suggesting the intentions of artists in making their work. Canadian Art Editor Richard Rhodes and artists Dana Claxton, Sky Glabush and Yam Lau will explore “Inside Story” as it helps us point to the narrative potentials of contemporary art as it spreads across media. The title is a vehicle to highlight the interactive ways in which art engages with knowledge and experience. It is a gauge for how artists think through the connective capacity of their art, and how they craft story potentials into objects and works that lead to interrogations of history, social space and the flood of images that defines contemporary reality.
Join us for breakfast before the talk or pick up your coffee in the Underground, either way, we have you covered.
