The House of Dust: Against the Grain of Technology with Zabet Patterson and Julia Robinson – Tonight!

27 Oct

Artists of the 1960s employed chance, technology, and social interaction to create “compositions” that crossed the disciplines of music, poetry, visual art, and dance. As the decade progressed, the initial impulses and experiments coalesced as Fluxus, Minimalism, and Conceptual Art. A key question of this discussion will be whether it is still productive, even viable to maintain these divisions on the basis of “art movements.” Art historians Zabet Patterson and Julia Robinson will discuss Fluxus practice with particular attention to the tensions of chance operations and technology and consider what the legacy of this movement is today, particularly for art’s relationship to technology. This event is organized by Maud Jacquin and Sebastien Pluot.
