moma: conceptual art, walid raad, etc.

moma has so much cool stuff up right now. their documentation is much better than mine:

  • Transmissions: Art in Eastern Europe and Latin America, 1960–1980 is a really refreshing, not u.s.-centric show of conceptual art, which lines up well with what we’re thinking about right now in my art strategies class
  • walid raad. just listen to him talk about his piece, “pension arts in dubai”
  • picasso’s weird brain and the resulting sculptures. my favorites are his studies of absinthe glasses and stringed instruments that he made between 1912-1915. also, the anatomical sketches (photo below)

that “tabula rasa” piece reminded me of this part from the lippard reading:

tabula rasa
