Conversations with Contemporary Artists: Paul Chan
Badlands Unlimited presents New Lovers
Tuesday, March 10, 7pm
Join us for the launch of New Lovers, a new book series by Paul Chan’s press, Badlands Unlimited. Presented in conjunction with The Hugo Boss Prize 2014: Paul Chan, Nonprojections for New Lovers, the New Lovers series features emerging writers and artists who use the genre of erotica to explore the complexities that bedevil contemporary life, culture, and art. Inspired by radical publisher Maurice Girodias and his Olympia Press, New Lovers offers readers a chance to turn on and tune in to new voices in art and literature. New Lovers authors Wednesday Black, Andrea McGinty, and Lilith Wes will read from their books, followed by a conversation with Chan, and a book signing. The program concludes with an exhibition viewing and a reception in the Guggenheim rotunda.

Tuesday, March 31, 6:30pm
Drawing upon themes of tourism, migration, displacement, and exile, transnational artist Emily Jacir and internationally renowned cultural historian Nikos Papastergiadis shed light upon Kawara’s practice with a discussion about the strategic function of travel, the artist’s studio as an unfixed site, and personal, social, and political identity.
