Paulo Tavares, “Earth Works (Toward a Reparation Architecture)”
e-flux Architecture Lectures
This talk by Paulo Tavares will draw from past and recent visual, spatial, and curatorial projects that deal with the earth, to explore the tentative concept of “reparation architecture.” Reparation Architecture is not a theme, it is a form of engagement. It is not a qualifier as in “social architecture,” but a position in relation to architecture as knowledge and practice. As such, it can take many forms across the trans-disciplinary fields where architectural thought and action manifest, from design to curating, from planning to publishing, from advocacy to building. If our most urgent political task today is re-building the world otherwise, reparations constitute a central question to architecture practice across its trans-scalar, trans-disciplinary, and trans-media manifestations. Presented as part of e-flux Architecture Lectures. Read more here.

Rachel Rose: In Between the Sublime and the Everyday
Get tickets
The work of Rachel Rose explores how our changing relationship to landscape has shaped storytelling and belief systems. Rose’s films draw from, and contribute to, the long history of cinematic innovation. Whether investigating cryogenics, the American Revolutionary War, or an astronaut’s space walk, Rose directs our attention to sites and histories in which the sublime and the everyday blur. She translates this in her paintings, sculptures, and drawings, which materially reverberate with one another, connecting the immediate to deep time. The screening presents Sitting Feeding Sleeping (2013), A Minute Ago (2014), Everything and More (2015), Lake Valley (2016), and Wil-o-Wisp (2018). Followed by an in-person discussion with the artist.

A performance by Kevin Beasley
Get tickets
Kevin Beasley’s practice spans sculpture, photography, sound, and performance while centering on materials of cultural and personal significance, from raw cotton harvested from his family’s property in Virginia to sounds gathered using contact microphones. Beasley alters, casts, and molds these diverse materials to form a body of works that acknowledge the complex, shared histories of the broader American experience, steeped in generational memories.

Gary Zhexi Zhang: Catastrophe Time! 
Bringing together artists, researchers, and interstitial practitioners, Catastrophe Time!, edited by Gary Zhexi Zhang explores what happens when reality loses its grip, and the temporalities we take for granted are radically disrupted, or reveal themselves—generatively or disastrously—as fantasies. By sampling temporal practices and operative fictions already playing out in our midst, it seeks ways of thinking, feeling and acting in multiple, heterogenous worlds which nonetheless unfold as one. As the title exclaims, this book explores the time of catastrophe: the weird temporalities that texture the making and unmaking of worlds. In particular, it attends to the ways in which reality is shaped by technologies of time and of belief: the evolution of finance, economics and insurance; predictive processes like simulation, mitigation and forecasting; conspiratorial plots and accidental manifestations. Join us for a book launch and conversation with Gary Zhexi ZhangKei Kreutler, Laura Serejo Genes, and Nolan Oswald Dennis. Read more here.

Angelo Madsen Minax: screening and discussion
Get tickets
Angelo Madsen Minax’s works are fueled by reflections in/of queer subculture and characterized by themes of desire, embodiment, and kinship. The works presented are largely unreleased and previously unseen, observing the Video Data Bank’s recent acquisition of the artist’s archive of early video work. Many of the videos in this collection weren’t initially intended for release and are collaborations with Minax’s friends, partners, and lovers. They are playful, erotic, heavy, crass, and together they create a punk-documentary tapestry of young queer life in Chicago in the early 2000s. Featuring Jackhammer (2007), Complementary parts (2007), Building Healthy Relationships (2003), Shave and a Haircut(2006), their body is filled with a liquid that tends to spread (2005), and Nich Tries to not remember Indiana (2003), the screening will also include Minax’s bigger on the inside (2022), a recent work that premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival, and a clip from A BODY TO LIVE IN, a feature film in production. Followed by a discussion with the artist. Read more here.
