Locust Roundtable: Elizabeth Shannon

Miami has institutions offering various types of arts education and training, yet there seems to be a perceived ‘lack’ in terms of certain types of provision. Does this ‘lack’ actually exist, and if so, how is it best addressed? Could training via alternative educational models be just as, if not more, effective than that provided by more traditional institutions?

August 28, 2014

Locust Roundtable: Cara Despain

At those moments when contemporary art talks become insular, impossibly esoteric, or drift into territory no one knows much about, maybe it’s best to call a life-line. Whether sought out or entirely unsolicited, fathers often offer their two-cents to their adult children. This might be embarrassing, hilarious, right on, or right off. What might happen if a Roundtable discussion concerning a specific topic in contemporary art were extended to an exterior panel of participant’s Dads? Inevitably this will change the course of the conversation, encourage insight from other fields, and expose familial dialogue.

Start: August 28, 2014 7:00 pm

Venue: Locust Projects

August 19, 2014

Locust Roundtable: Daniel Clapp

Artists find inspiration in a wide spectrum of sources, from a local/macro scale to overarching themes and discourses. Informed by recent interviews conducted by Daniel Clapp with fellow artists, this conversation will consider inspiration within various historical contexts while acknowledging differences between work that is possibly referential, appropriation-based, or derivative.

Start: August 19, 2014 7:00 pm
End: August 19, 2014 8:30 pm
Venue: Locust Projects

August 12, 2014

Locust Roundtable: Jim Drain

There are moments when the pressure to make art is overwhelming, when artists do not want to create. What does this mean? Is the impulse to make art a therapeutic one? How does that line up with notions of an authentic self? Jim Drain will be speaking about a selection of online videos that help him explore these questions.

Start: August 12, 2014 7:00 pm
End: August 12, 2014 8:30 pm
