The Third Party
Artist and Summer Salon Series Co-Curator David White will be presenting The Third Party throughout the summer. This work consists of a mobile interview cart that can be relocated to any gallery in the Museum. White pre-selects individuals to join him on the cart for an interview, which always begins with a conversation on the work of art the cart happens to be parked in front of at that time. The works and the guests are chosen in concert with one another, so that the work of art serves as an appropriate point of departure for the conversation with that particular guest. Each of these conversations will be videorecorded and posted online for future viewing.
For this week's Third Party, artist and Summer Salon Series co-curator David White will interview architect Teddy Cruz.
Join Brian Patterson, Museum Educator, for an art-making workshop that is sure to be fun and engaging for all ages and skill levels.
Omar Pimienta and John Pluecker
Omar Pimienta will be reading a selection of poems that circulate around familial stories, garden plants, border crossings, intergenerational poetries, migratory patterns and a sense of being while in motion. John Pluecker will read translations of these poems in addition to selections from some recent works, which are driven by translation as a generative practice for innovative writing.
The Quilt Conversation
The Quilt Conversation
will take place over ten weeks this summer. Artist Andrew Printer, with Ann Olsen, have organized two groups of quilters who will work at the Museum on Friday evenings to construct two quilts that recall the 1980’s. Inspired by major artworks that emerged during the AIDS crisis one group of quilters will consist of those who contributed to the original NAMES Project AIDS Memorial Quilt in Washington, D.C. The second group will recall and historicize other themes of that decade, ranging from Paul Simon’s Graceland to the fall of the Berlin wall. Each group’s quilt making conversations will be recorded and that text will form the basis of a performance to be presented on the last evening of the Summer Salon Series 2012. In addition, the completed quilts will be formally presented and hung in the rotunda of the Museum on Fridays upon their completion until the final evening. The Quilt Conversation project will take place every Friday evening for two hours in the Upper Rotunda beginning June 15th.
