Frequent member to OWS Arts network meetings and events, Gregory Sholette will host a teach-in tonight at Parsons the New School for Design… here is the description of the teach-in from the Parson’s #searchunderoccupy website:
“How has OWS, a dynamic and still-unfolding phenomenon, invoked “archival agency?” What power does that agency wield? How does the swarmchive of OWS promise to continue to write itself and to what transformative end?
“Gregory Sholette is a New York-based artist, writer, a founding member of Political Art Documentation/Distribution (PAD/D: 1980-1988), and REPOhistory (1989-2000), and author of Dark Matter: Art and Politics in an Age of Enterprise Culture, Pluto Press, 2011. He teaches Sculpture at Queens College: City University of New York.
“Greg asks that you come with questions and your own archive project for discussion. You can read his article of the same title in advance of his teach-in at http://artjournal.collegeart.org/?p=2395”
