"My opinion, my conviction, is that in his work an artist should give an account of himself, and of the time and place he inhabits. The artist should reveal the pretence (or lies) of the establishment, unmasking what is happening to man and showing how man is manipulated and dehumanized. The artist should present an account of the soul of his contemporary"
...and this coming week UWL will host the National Undergrad Research Conference. Some news about this cool event:
Max Wheeler a printmaker from Ohio University in Athens, Ohio will be presenting at this year's NCUR wants your help in his presentation, which involves performance art.
The title of the performance is called "NICE!!!
Max is asking you to: “1. To be present at my presentation 2. To take part in any way they see fit, relating to the artist statement that I sent you. That could involve making costumes, puppets, masks, etc. , and bringing them to the performance.”
I will have him leave additional info here as a comment.
