Digital Time + Music Videos
Thursday June 25th, 6:30PM EDT
This visual reading group will use critical writing around contemporary music videos to explore how they function inside, and outside, of image culture. Drawing on themes of digital time, accelerationist aesthetics and affect theory, the group will discuss videos by artists such as FKA Twigs and Solange, in conversation with texts by Kadish Morris and Steven Shaviro, among others.
Saturday June 6th, 12:00PM EDT
This visual reading group will look at and consider Sam Contis’ photographic series Deep Springs. The varying contexts and accompanying texts in which the photographs from this series appear will also be explored; this includes the photobook, gallery exhibitions, reviews, and interviews.
