David Robbins: High Entertainment

Visiting artist and writer David Robbins will talk about “high entertainment.” A practice for the future that combines the critical capacity of fine art with the pleasures and reach of show business, “high entertainment” could be what you are already making. Robbins’s objects, images, and writing reflect on spectacle and the position of the artist in the visual system, and suggest possibilities for a new relationship between art and the entertainment industry. + David Robbins has had over three dozen solo exhibitions in the United States and Europe and is the author of five books, most recently The Velvet Grind: Essays, Interviews, Satires (1983-2005) and a novella, The Ice Cream Social (1998, re-issued in 2004). He is currently writing an alternative history of twentieth century comedy.
