The Arts in the Humanities Lecture Series, 2015-16
Bruce Hainley
November 13, 2015
11:30-1:30 p.m.
Rice Media Center Film Auditorium (reception to follow talk)

Using the work of Vincent Fecteau and Michael Queenland, Hainley will discuss the challenges to the discreet object in a time of indiscretion, the personal in the instant of social media, and aesthetic belief in light of bio-­precariousness.

Bruce Hainley lives and works in Los Angeles. He is the author of Art—A Sex Book (with John Waters); Foul Mouth, a National Poetry Series finalist; No Biggie; as well as Under the Sign of [sic]: Sturtevant’s Volte-­Face and Art & Culture, both published by Semiotext(e). Professor in the Graduate Art program at Art Center College of Design, he is a contributing editor of Artforum and recently served as Bingham Visiting Professor in the Humanities at the University of Louisville. With Antony Hudek, he curated "Larry Johnson: On Location" for Raven Row in London; in conjunction with this exhibit, the first European survey of Johnson's photographic work, he edited Commie Pinko Guy, a fully illustrated, portable reader about the artist.

Professor Hainley will also participate in the roundtable "Life,” Biopolitics, and Contemporary Art: A Conversation with Mark Dion.  The session's speakers include Mark Dion, Maria Whiteman (Rice University), Toby Kamps (The Menil Collection), Amanda Boetzkes, (Guelph University) and Bruce Hainley (Art Center College of Design). The discussion will take place on Friday, November 13, 2015, 2:00-3:30 in the auditorium at Rice’s Bioscience Research Collaborative Building.
