Two Ships Passing
Poets Kyle Schlesinger and Cindy St. John

Visual Arts Center (Austin)

With poets Kyle Schlesinger and Cindy St. John, this edition of Two Ships Passing concerns the kinds of meaning that viewers and readers can extract from looking closely at the producer’s temporal structuring of a work. Whether works fragment, layer, or juxtapose sequences of events, ideas, or images, these moments of fracture and compression guide us through the work.

Two Ships Passing
Art Historian Andy Campbell and Fashion Designer Gail Chovan

Visual Arts Center (Austin)

With art historian Andy Campbell and fashion designer Gail Chovan, this talk concerns the methods of dealing with the profusion of pictures in magazines, photographs, the Internet, documents, and other assorted ephemera–instead of a single work of art. This conversation explores the idea that artists and historians today see far more images much more quickly than they did a few decades ago and the ways of sifting through and studying an abundance of images have changed in response.
