Speakers Series : Greg Moynahan - "An Odd Thought Concerning a New Sort of Exhibition": Experience and Experiment in Early Modern Europe

Speakers Series : Greg Moynahan - "An Odd Thought Concerning a New Sort of Exhibition": Experience and Experiment in Early Modern Europe

March 12, 2012

How did the concept of scientific experiment first arise in the early modern period, and what was its relation to artistic experience? The history of science and the history of museums have put forth a variety of answers to this question, but this lecture will suggest that a key issue was the relatively late appearance of the problem of infinity. Using Nicholas of Cusa (1401-1464) and Gottfried Leibniz (1646-1716) to frame this development, the discussion will conclude with an overview of Leibniz's phantasmorgic "Odd Thought" (1675). The piece describes a "museum of everything that could be imagined" and now reads like a strange carnival, but was apparently the first outline of Leibniz' plan for the Prussian Academy of Science.d Archives.

Speakers Series : Lia Gangitano - Dead Flowers

March 19, 2012
CCS Bard, Seminar Room 1

In an effort to understand a genealogy of influences reflective of the role of the non-commercial, non-institutional space, I often look to artists who seem to have inspired, or instigated, their existence. The 2010 exhibition Dead Flowers, based on the work of actor/director Timothy Carey and curated for Vox Populi, an artist collective in Philadelphia, is a manifestation of this inquiry, which grew out of an essay commissioned for the 2006 Whitney Biennial, Day for Night. The assignment was to address, in tandem, notions of the underground and the relevance of the alternative space.

This talk will address Gerard and Kelly’s collaborative projects through the rubric of the legacy and politics of Minimalism--and those parts of human experience minimal art negates in order to function.

In a discussion of their recent projects and a reading of excerpts from current writing, they will address the body and its perishable materialities as the site for working through this antinomy.
