Systems and the Politics of Representation
Lecture | October 1 | 6:30 a.m.-8 p.m. | Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive
In this talk, Charles Gaines will discuss his early work in systems and numerals to his most recent work with language and representation. This will include a discussion of ways the work rethinks notions of subjectivity and how they are manifested in works of art. Additionally, there will be a discussion about the fine difference between chance and arbitrary judgments on the one hand and expressive and intuitional judgments on the other, both sharing the characteristic of being indeterminate, and how works of art can uniquely interrogate this difference.
