Speaking this Thursday: A Practical Introduction to Art for the Absolute Beginner

7 May, 2007

I'll be speaking this Thursday at the first ever UrHo Talks event (we're still working on the name). My talk is titled "A Practical Introduction to Art for the Absolute Beginner". It's a whirlwind tour through art history, theory, and historiography meant to make you better at looking at and reading about art. It was inspired by Mikey's post contemplating whether or not he's an artist.

It'll be a night of high culture: Claire will be showing a selection of films by Charles and Ray Eames, Matthew Stadler will be giving a lecture, and Veneer Magazine editor, Aaron Flint Jamison will be doing something as well. Each of the presentations will be about 20-30 minutes and it should be informal and fun.

Here are the details:

Thursday, May 10
Mississppi Ballroom (833 N. Shaver Street)
7 pm

I'm speaking first.

I'll post the slides here after the talk. Also, we're hoping to record the event in some way, so I may have audio or video to post as well at some point.
