Greg Sholette

Wednesday, February 8, 4:15 p.m.

George C.S. Benson Auditorium
Pitzer College

Join artist, writer and activist Greg Sholette for a discussion of his forthcoming book, Delirium and Resistance: Activist Art and the Crisis of Capitalism. In the wake of the 2016 US election, Brexit and a global upsurge of nationalist populism, Sholette contends that the delirium and the crisis of neoliberal capitalism are now the delirium and crisis of liberal democracy and its culture. Delirium and Resistance provides a firsthand account of the relationship between politics and art in a neoliberal society.

Greg Sholette is an associate of the Art, Design and the Public Domain program at the Harvard Graduate School of Design and is an associate professor at the City University of New York. The author of Dark Matter: Art and Politics in the Age of Enterprise Culture, Sholette is a founding member of numerous art collectives, including Political Art Documentation/Distribution.

This lecture is free and open to the public. A public reception and book signing will follow immediately after the lecture. Sholette’s book, Dark Matter: Art and Politics in the Age of Enterprise Culture (Marxism and Culture), will be available for purchase and limited on a first come, first serve basis. Light appetizers and beverages will be provided.

Far from Indochine
Artist Lecture: “Site and the Imaginary”
Saturday, September 10 at 1:30 p.m.
Broad Center Performance Space, Broad Center

Patty Chang and David Kelley join us to discuss their collaborative video work Route 3, which is currently on view at the Pitzer College Art Galleries in the Far from Indochine exhibition, and a selection of other projects. While the pair work across a wide range of mediums and disciplines, from sculpture, drawing and photography to film, performance and new media, at the core of their collaboration is the intersection of site and the imaginary.

Route 3 is their recent video about a newly completed highway in rural Laos. Connecting China to Thailand through the former Golden Triangle, the new highway has accelerated Chinese development of Lao agricultural and gambling industries, and the migration of rural Lao minority populations to the growing roadside towns. The video considers the enigmatic changes in the visual landscape through performance and sculpture.
