Speakers Series : Lars Bang Larsen – Dexter Bang Sinister: Black and White Psychedelia

March 26, 2012 from 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
CCS Bard, Seminar Room 1

The starting point for my talk is an exhibition that I am currently developing at Charlottenborg Exhibition Hall, Copenhagen, together with the writers, graphic designers and publishers Dexter Sinister (Stuart Bailey, Angie Keefer and David Reinfurt). I will relate the exhibition’s hypothesis of a low-grade psychedelic visuality to a discussion of concepts and processes of curatorial research, collaboration and self-reflection.

Lars Bang Larsen is an art historian, writer and curator. He has co-curated group exhibitions such as “Populism,” Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam (2005), “La insurrección invisible de un millón de mentes,” Sala Rekalde, Bilbao (2005), and “A History of Irritated Material,” Raven Row, London (2010). His books include The Model. A Model for a Qualitative Society, 1968 (2010) and Sture Johannesson (2002).

About The Speakers Series:  Each semester the Center for Curatorial Studies at Bard College hosts a regular program of lectures by the foremost artists, curators, art historians, and critics of our day, situating the school and museum’s concerns within the larger context of contemporary art production and discourse. Lectures are open to students and faculty, as well as to the general public, and will also be documented through video and/or audio recordings, which will reside in the CCS Bard Library and Archives.
