Art Is Not A Crime…End the Mural Moratorium

The reason I hired five jet planes to sky write over City Hall and downtown Los Angeles is to bring awareness to how ridiculous a moratorium on public art is.  -SABER

Anthropocene Extinction by SWOON

Swoon is one of my favorite artists and a lovely person. She just did a great install at the Boston ICA. If you are in New England check it out in person, or see it on the website.
-Shepard

On the occasion of its 75th anniversary this fall, the Institute of Contemporary Art/Boston (ICA) has commissioned Brooklyn-based artist Swoon to create the fifth installation of the Sandra and Gerald Fineberg Art Wall. Extending from the elevator atrium to the lobby and soaring forty feet up to the ceiling, Swoon’s new installation is the largest to occupy the Fineberg Art Wall. The work, titled Anthropocene Extinction, is composed of streams of intricately cut paper which connect key sculptural elements within the installation-including a 400-pound, suspended bamboo sculpture. Swoon is on view at the ICA from Sept. 3, 2011 to Dec. 30, 2012.

In both her art and her own life, Swoon is deeply engaged with social issues and humanitarian projects. Anthropocene Extinction looks at the effects of industrialized society on people and the environment, and includes a portrait of one of the last Australian Aboriginals to have experienced traditional nomadic culture. The term “anthropocene” refers to the “age of man” and was recently coined by geologists to describe the outsized influence of man on the natural environment.

In conversation with Bob Mould

Husker Du was one of my favorite bands as a teenager. I made home-made tee shirts of their logo and their Metal Circus and New Day Rising album art.

On Sept. 20, I will be having a discussion/conversation with Bob Mould, one of the two main songwriters of that influential group, who has continued to make great music. Check out the details, and check the photo of me from 88 with hand drawn Husker Du logo (along with the Cramps) on my art box.

The event will be held at Herbst Theatre in San Francisco Sept 20 2011.  Buy tickets here.  Shepard will also be DJing after the lecture at RICKSHAW STOP starting at 10pm.  More information available here.
