A Lecture by Vanessa Place
Thursday, February 28, 2013 | 6:30 PM
Contemporary Arts Center Colloquium Room (CAC 3201)

Of Vanessa Place and Robert Fitterman’s Notes on Conceptualisms, Mary Kelly said, “I learned more about the impact of conceptualism on artists and writers than I had from reading so-called canonical works on the subject.”  Kenneth Goldsmith has called Vanessa Place’s work “arguably the most challenging, complex and controversial literature being written today.”  Considered a leading practitioner of conceptual poetry, Place is also a critic, criminal defense attorney, and co-director of Les Figues Press.  Place lectures and performs internationally.

Free and open to the public.

This event is part of The Process, the UCI Department of Art Graduate Colloquium Series for Winter 2013. The Colloquium is designed to be an opportunity for the UCI community to engage in dialogue with guest artists from a variety of disciplines and perspectives in the field of contemporary art.
