For those of you in/around Chicago this week, Ben Russell will be giving an artist’s talk/performance about his current solo show at threewalls on Thursday at 7:00pm. It is a delicious exhibit of BR’s mystic acuity. Superluminal; punk-rock; enchanting; ton-o-fun.
In which the artist performs a televised lecture regarding the seven works currently on display in his solo exhibition, Uh-Oh It’s Magic. Possible topics to be discussed include: working under the influence, phenomenological states, animism, optics and subjectivity, levitation, cultural relativism, and rainbows. The notion of “losing oneself in one’s work” will be demonstrated materially during the course of the lecture and subsequent Q&A.
In case you haven’t yet seen the show, it’ll be up until the 23rd of April — here is what some kind souls have said about it so far (in both image and word):
