"Bruce Nauman Going Solo," a lecture by Robert Slifkin, Friday, Feb. 17, 7 p.m. at Reed College is a must attend event.
I don't know how much prodding PORT readers need (Basements is one of the best shows I've ever seen at Reed) but to sweeten the deal everyone who attends Robert Slifkin's lecture on Bruce Nauman also receives a free book. This will be packed so plan on arriving early.
Robert Slifkin was a Reed College Assistant Professor of Art History and Humanities (2007-10) and is currently Professor of Fine Arts, Institute of Fine Arts, New York University. His lecture is in conjunction with the exhibition Bruce Nauman, Basements, Early Studio Films,1967-69, on view at the Cooley Gallery through March 9, 2012. The gallery will be open additional hours from noon to 9:30 PM on the 17th as well.
"Slifkin's lecture is being published in book form—the first in a new series of pocketbook readers published by the Cooley under the imprint Companion Editions, designed by Heather Watkins in Portland, OR."
