Chris Kraus

Thursday, March 8th, 7:00 pm

UC San Diego, Visual Arts Facility Performance Space on Russell Lane, La Jolla, California 92093

Free and Open to the Public.

Chris Kraus will read from her 2011 book WHERE ART BELONGS, that examines recent artistic enterprises that reclaim the use of lived time as a material. Expanding the argument begun in her earlier book, VIDEOGREEN, Kraus argues that “the art world is interesting only insofar as it reflects the larger world outside it.”

Moving from New York to Berlin to Los Angeles to the Pueblo Nuevo barrio of Mexicali, Kraus examines the uses of boredom, poetry, privatized prisons, community art, corporate philanthropy, vertically integrated manufacturing, and discarded utopias, revealing the surprising persistence of microcultures within the matrix. For all its faults, she concludes, the art world remains the last frontier for the desire to live differently.

The Glasgow Review of Books describes WHERE ART BELONGS as “an incitement to find art, to read in a heroic way, and to create a moment;” Bookforum has praised its “poeticism and daunting theoretical undercurrents.” “In WHERE ART BELONGS,” Alina Astrova writes, “art theory becomes political philosophy … a means of establishing a way of life outside capitalist conventions.”

Chris Kraus is the author of four novels and two books of art essays. The recipient of a Frank Mather Award in Art Criticism and a Warhol Foundation art writing grant, she has been described by Holland Cotter in the New York Times as “one of our smartest and original writers on art and culture.”

The third installment of Art Tap Out is here!  This time at the MCASD downtown for TNT. For those not familiar with ATO it is an event that pits artist against critic in a ring resembling underground pugilism, ultimate fighting or cock fighting. As usual Kevin Freitas of Art As Authority will be in the critic’s slot throwing down verbal punches!  Audience participation is strongly encouraged (in fact, it is what this is all about).

In the ring this time is:

Omar Pimienta

Micha Cardenas & Elle Mermand

Suzanne Wright


(don’t be late)
