Signs and symbols and pith (hopefully)

October 15, 2009

In today’s edition of the Daily Cardinal: Anthony Cefali and I collaborated on a review of the Robert Rauschenberg exhibit currently on display at the Madison Museum of Contemporary Art, and, lo n’ behold, after sitting on the backburner for a couple weeks now, it actually got published. It’s pretty lengthy as far as DC articles are concerned, but it’s also probably one of the articles I’m most proud of having written. Enjoy (maybe).

Tonight at the MMoCA: Jeremi Suri on Rauschenberg

October 9, 2009

Well here’s a free lecture that sounds rather promising: UW history professor Jeremi Suri is giving a talk on Robert Rauschenberg tonight at the Madison Museum of Contemporary Art (located on State St., between Johnson and Dayton; the building literally cannot be missed). Suri’s going to wax historical on Rauschenberg’s work and milieu, as well as the influence that Raushcenberg has had on subsequent generations of artists, intellectuals, etc. The lecture begins at 6:30PM in the MMoCA’s main gallery.

P.S. Not quite sure what the hold-up is with the publication of the collaborative review I wrote with Daily Cardinal opinions editor Anthony Cefali of the MMoCA’s new-ish Rauschenberg exhibit, “Signs of the Times: Robert Rauschenberg’s America”, but trust that as soon as it gets published—if it gets published—I’ll have a nice blue link for all y’all to click on.
