Dana Schutz talk @ CMU

Well here's one of those fancy young art stars passing through town and on her way to her solo museum show in Cleveland.

School of Art Lecture Series
Each semester the School of Art offers a series of lectures. All lectures are free and open to the public. Lectures are announced via e-mail, flyers, bulletin boards, calendars, and on this web site. Students are strongly encouraged to attend these events. In some courses, attendance at these lectures is required. This series of bi-weekly lectures by artists and other art professionals is made possible in part by The Elizabeth (Thompson) and Thomas M. Cox, A’29, Distinguished Artist Fund. Lectures usually occur on Thursdays at 5pm, often in McConomy Auditorium in the University Center.

Dana is actually from Detroit and thanks to Detroit Arts, I have some nice shots from her show in Cleveland. Calling work that often plays with ugliness eye candy is wierd, but often Dana pulls it off.
