“Slow Art”: A presentation by John Kelly and Arden Reed, 12/3/07

December 3, 2007IASEvents0

In an image-saturated environment, how can we slow down long enough to engage meaningfully with aesthetic objects? An unexpected answer comes in the form of an old parlor game where people staged themselves as famous artworks: tableaux vivants. Join us for a conversation between performance artist John Kelly and scholar Arden Reed on new forms of this older practice.

Arden Reed is Arthur M. Dole and Fanny M. Dole Professor of English, Pomona College and his current research examines Tableaux Vivants. John Kelly is a performance and visual artist working in areas of dance, theater, voice, photography, video, drawing, and painting.
