CIRCLE TALKS CONVERSATION SERIES
Tuesday, August 21
Triple Candie will present a performance-lecture that focuses on its art-less exhibitions. The performance will explore a range of topics, from artist obituaries and artistic agency, to the “Death of the Artist” and the “Author Function” late ‘60s French theory, as well as the ethics of posthumous artistic creation. A brief history of Triple Candie’s programs are interwoven throughout -- David Hammons: The Unauthorized Retrospective, Cady Noland Approximately, James Lee Byars: I Cancel My Works at Death, Maurizio Cattelan is Dead: Life and Work, If Michael Asher, etc. The title “Let the Artists Die” is borrowed from a 1985 play by the Polish artist-playwright Tadeusz Kantor about art under authoritarian regimes.

WEIRD SHIFT MICRO TALK
Thursday August 23
With a whiff of Pecha-Kucha, and a penchant for sideline knowledge areas, Weird Shift hosts "MicroTalks" an evening of short-form presentations that might include inspiring rants, marginalia studies and image-laden screeds. Expect (and/or become part of) an eclectic array of offerings from local and telepresent artists, writers, concept engineers, cranks and independent researchers. All are welcome, bring images on flashdrive or laptop, or step up, open-mic style.
