Dada Here & Now Visual Art Symposium Part 3
Wednesday June 1,
Duration: 2 hours 15 minutes
with a 15 minute intermission
Tickets: General Admission, Free
6:15 - 6:45pm Ros Salters Acosta & Maria T Allocco, At War With Language
A piece that explores the peeling off of layers of identity to express a state of undefined form and spaces to unveil a more raw truth. Throughout the piece, layers of clothing will be peeled off - moving through stages of being weighted-down to revealing a diaphanous final layer and epicenter.
7:00pm – 9:30pm John Held Jr and Jasper Patterson, Anti-Art Then & Now
Anti Art then and Now is a critical assessment of Dada as a protest movement with an anti-establishment manifesto that casts long shadows. Panelists John Held Jr and Jasper Patterson will examine the long history of anti art sentiments, movements and manifestations as related to today’s generation of Dada-influenced creative. The effect of Dada was to create a climate in which art was alive to the moment and not paralyzed by the traditions and restrictions of established values. By exploring the connections between successive movements with similar sentiments can we illuminate the enduring influence and relevance of Dada today?
