Other Events This Week

Our Literal Speed presents Everythingism
Tues. Apr 3, 6pm
Metcalf Auditorium, Chase Center, RISD

It could be argued that the most compelling art is no longer defined by particular media (painting, sculpture, photography, video), or by particular subjects (portraiture, landscape, still life, devotional image), or by particular strategies of representation (Cubism, Surrealism, Pop Art, Appropriation); instead, the true art of our time might best be described as being distinguished by activities that employ everything to evoke everything by means of everything. Our Literal Speed is a text and art undertaking located in Selma, Alabama.
