S.P.A.C.E. Lecture Series Presents This Is Not Very Serious

Jonn Herschend, visual artist, filmmaker, and founder/editor of The Thing Quarterly will present some of his work and explain how robbing trains in an amusement park for two years while in college helped him come to terms with his art making. Issues to be discussed: Blake Edward's 10, the boxing scene in City Lights, PT Anderson, The Romantic Movement (as both embarrassing and mind blowing), and why Vito Acconci is hilarious.

Bread and butter will be served.

The S.P.A.C.E. Lecture series is part of a larger network of programming and organization with the ultimate goal of abolishing time. The lecture series brings in artists, arts professionals, philosophers, and other speakers to discuss their lives and careers. The overall aim of the series is the establishing of the fact that common extracurricular interest is an invisible resource, one perhaps richer and more full of life than those we have come to know so well.
