Hal Foster at Architectural Association Inc
Thank you "Oswaldinho" for inviting me to the talk!! Well done!!
'Chat Rooms, Archival Spaces & Other Conundra in Contemporary Art'
Co-editor of October journal and critic Hal Foster will discuss some key themes and preoccupations found in recent ‘relational’ and ‘post-relational’ art practices. This lecture will follow on, in part, from the preceding week’s, by curator Nicholas Bourriaud. Hal Foster is the Townsend Martin Professor of Art and Archaeology at Princeton University. His landmark 1983 edited The Anti-Aesthetic: Essays on Postmodern Culture identified the end of the modern era and the arrival of postmodernism. His other books include Convulsive Beauty, Design and Crime and Prosthetic Gods. He is also a regular contributor to London Review of Books, where he often focuses on contemporary architecture.
