Strategies of perception, objectification and radical infringement of rules in the work of Al Taylor
Al Taylor compared art making to playing a game in which you change the rules in the middle so it doesn't get boring. Join Michael Semff, art historian, former director of the Staatliche Graphische Sammlung in Munich, and author of Al Taylor: Prints. Catalogue Raisonné, for a lecture that will shed light on one of Taylor's major demands, to devise “elaborate programs, systems and methods which break down, fall apart and change the more successful they become, taking on meanings and a life outside and beyond the artist's original intentions."
The exhibition The Drawings of Al Taylor will be open at 5:30 for program attendees.
