Two Gigs: Saturday 9/22 @Printed Matter, Friday 9/28 @NYABF

I'm really stoked to be participating in two events in New York in the next few days. Please come if you're in town, and pass the word.

The first is at Printed Matter this coming Saturday evening, Sept. 22, from 6-7:30PM. It should be a hoot:

The ongoing Cariou v. Prince trial have presented a high-stakes platform for debating copyright, appropriation, fair-use and artists' rights. One thing that's been oddly missing from the discussion, though, is the art itself.

Printed Matter will host a raucous crit of Richard Prince's little-seen but much-contested Canal Zone paintings, culminating in an open-forum, Iron Chef-style evaluation of each artwork in terms of content, aesthetics, and infringiness.

Using bootleg copies of Prince's banned exhibition catalogue and excerpts from the artist's own sworn deposition testimony which were never entered into evidence in court, panelists Joy Garnett, Greg Allen, and Chris Habib will take a closer, critical look at Prince's paintings and practice in an art historical context.

Joy Garnett is an artist and writer in Brooklyn, NY. She is also the founder of the blog NEWsgrist (where spin is art).

Greg Allen has been writing about the creative process at greg.org: the making of, since 2001. He published Canal Zone Richard Prince YES RASTA: Selected Court Documents from Cariou v. Prince et al. in 2011.

Chris Habib is an artist and the curator of HELP/LESS, which runs through Sept. 29th at Printed Matter.

And then next Friday, Sept 28 at 2-3:30, I'll be speaking at the Contemporary Artist Book Conference as part of the NY Art Book Fair at PS1. The session, led by Stephen Bury, will be on the limits, excesses, and future of appropriation and copyright law. Artist Eric Doeringer and artist/lawyer Sergio Muñoz Sarmiento will also speak. It should be awesome. If you're at the Fair, definitely come join us in the Dome.

Since 2001 here at greg.org, I've been blogging about the creative process—my own and those of people who interest me. That mostly involves filmmaking, art, writing, research, and the making thereof.

Many thanks to the Creative Capital | Warhol Foundation Arts Writers Program for supporting greg.org that time.
