Maintaining the Art-Law Balance, Round III

A few years ago, I wrote two posts on this blog [here and here] about the tendency for my speaking engagements to come in pairs, allowing me to serially exercise my right-brain ‘art’ side and my left-brain ‘law’ side, all the while maintaining my geography ‘centre’. It seems like this pattern is continuing. On the […]

Sekula Symposium in Singapore

It’s a bit too much of a hike for me, but fellow followers and critics of Allan Sekula’s who are in the neighbourhood should consider heading to NTU in Singapore on 26 September to attend what looks like a fantastic day devoted to his work. The symposium accompanies an ongoing Sekula exhibit there. Thanks to […]

Sekula, Space, and Protest: Reflections on the Ship of Empty Boxes

Sekula, Space, and Protest: Reflections on the Ship of Empty Boxes

I’m just back from a weekend in London that was a surprisingly coherent exploration into the intersections of art, politics, protest, mobility, and the ocean.
