Dirty talks

SVA Event RID 225. “Is Figuration a Reaffirmation of the Status Quo?” Audrey Flack, Leon Golub, Alfred Leslie, Thomas Lawson, moderator Corinne Robins. 17 November 1981.

Panel discussions and talks sponsored by the Fine Arts Department in the heady conceptual late-70s and early-80s often adopted a DIY or punk aesthetic in their announcements. The gritty, hand-composed images reinforced the impression of open-ness of work that dispensed with, or critiqued, illusion.

SVA Event RID 152. An Informal Talk With Lee Krasner. 9 December 1977.

SVA Event RID 213. Symposium. With Ingrid Sischy, Carol Squiers, Alan Moore, Diego Cortez, Julian Schnabel, Jenny Holzer, and Barbara Kruger. Organized by Joseph LaPlaca and Randolph Black, 4 May 1981.

Oh look who they almost forgot there. More posters for a Fine Arts Film Series next week.
