THE INTERNET AS CHAINED LIBRARY Starting in the 16th and 17th centuries, when books were in their nascency, many institutions chained them together due to their value. Seeing a book in chains in the 21st century feels strangely wrong, yet hundreds of years ago it was a viable security system.

NOTHING IS LITERAL: TRANSLATION AS REMIX Translating poetry requires making a myriad of choices, none of which could be described as literally rewriting a text from one language into another. A better metaphor is perhaps the remix in music, in which a song is manipulated by a second artist. To illustrate this theory, examples of choices in translating the work of Peruvian poet César Vallejo will be presented and opened up for debate.Find out more »
AS IT PLEASES: A CENTURY OF CHANCE AND INDETERMINACY IN ART Since Marcel Duchamp’s 3 Standard Stoppages, 1913-1914, chance and indeterminacy have played key roles in the development of the avant-garde of the early 20th century, as well as the postwar neo-avantgarde.

Locust Talks lecture series hosts visiting curators from innovative institutions across the country and internationally for public lectures at the gallery space followed by individual studio visits with local artists, fostering a rigorous critical dialogue about art in the community.
Now celebrating its 15th year of exhibiting experimental contemporary art, Locust Projects is pleased to present the exhibition Grid’s World, a collaborative installation by Alexandra Hopf, Marcos Valella, Odalis Valdivieso, Siebren Versteeg and Gabriel Vormstein—artists working in Miami, New York, and Berlin. Considering the exhibition space as a framework, the artists will treat their individual works as flexible modules, collaging them together throughout all three galleries to create a massive collaborative installation. Throughout the installation, the individual artists’ works will function as exclusive relics within the crisscrossing positions of a new storyline base around inclusivity. The result is a mosaic of a show-construction, using the white cube as an open slate and drawing on a selfreflecting but mutual parallel and perpendicular progression–a grid.Find out more »
