Artist Lecture Series: Molly Barnes


Renown art dealer, west coast radio talk-show personality, and author, Molly Barnes will be interviewed by Susan Eley, director of Susan Eley Fine Art. Molly has written three books, hosts art talks at the Roger Smith Hotel, and served as ATOA's Program director for several years. She is also responsible for discovering such great art talents as John Baldessari, Robert Cottingham, and Mark Kostabi. She will discuss the many aspects of her life in the world of art.



Artist Lecture Series: Keren Cytter

7:30pm - 9pm February 4, 2010

'Keren Cytter's videos have a distinctly literary flavour. Although her medium is tape and she makes countless references to cinematic and televised forms, her scripts often involve long soliloquies and multiple voice-overs that would seem more comfortable unravelling over the pages of a novel. The subject matter of her work is the stuff of relationships – loss, loving, longing, friendship, betrayal – much of it culled from her own or her friends' lives.' - frieze.com

Keren Cytter has had solo exhibitions at CCA Center for Contemporary Art, Kitakyushu (2009), Witte de With, Rotterdam (2008), and MUMOK, Vienna (2007). Her work was included in the New Museum's landmark exhibition The Generational: Younger Than Jesus, and the 53rd Venice Biennale curated by Daniel Birnbaum.

Conversation will ensue after artist talk with ATOA's Director of Programming, Peter Duhon, followed by questions and answer session with audience.

FILM CLUB: Claude Chabrol's 'The Bridesmaid'

7pm - 9pm Februrary 18, 2010

"The deliciously twisted world of Claude Chabrol turns on a different axis from our own, though a closer look always suggests discomfiting similarities... The mystery of empathy pervades Mr. Chabrol's work, which is full of sociopaths, some charming, others not." - NY Times

Artist Lecture Series: John Newsom

7pm - 9pm February 25, 2010

'Valentines from a violent world, John Newsom's paintings and works on paper, which draw on sources such as natural history displays and antique field guides, are laced with dangerous beauty. Meticulously rendered bats and insects materialize amid branches, vines and fleshy blossoms, while myriad birds of prey tear at carrion or snatch up smaller creatures.' - Frieze

Born in 1970 in Kansas, Newsom earned his BFA at the Rhode Island School of Design and his MFA at New York University. Since his debut in the early 90s, Newsom's work has been displayed in 15 solo exhibitions, including recent shows in New York and Milan, Italy. His work has been included in over 50 group exhibitions, including shows at the Guggenheim. - Patrick Painter Inc

Conversation will ensue after artist talk with ATOA's Director of Programming, Peter Duhon, followed by questions and answer session with audience.

Artist Lecture Series: Ester Partegàs

7:30pm - 9pm March 18, 2010

The body and mind of the contemporary city has incorporated buzz words, logos, marketing percentages, random data and product placement in its ever-hardening landscape of regulated experience. For me, producing work is an attempt to rescue the 'everyday' in all its versatility and conflicting meanings." Ester Partegàs, Flash Art
