This lecture will address a set of “classic” postmodern dilemmas and positions, and their potential relevance to artistic production and reception today. Texts from the 1980’s by Frederic Jameson, Yves Alain Bois, and Achille Bonito Oliva will be closely examined and compared to a curator’s essay published in a group exhibition catalog last year. The lecture will also cover writings by Kari Rittenbach and Roberto Bolaño.
Jay Chung and Q Takeki Maeda have recently exhibited their work at Roppongi Crossing 2016: My Body, Your Voice, Galerie Francesca Pia, Cabinet Gallery, and 356 Mission.
