Department of Art and Art History Presents: Dr. Josh T. Franco "Dear Joshua, All My Love"

Add to Calendar4:15 pm – 5:15 pm

Dear Joshua, All My Love

A letter from the art historian to the artist

 In this epistolary essay, I explore the ongoing relationship between myself, an art historian, and artist Joshua Saunders. The decadence over time of the professional distance in our relationship is narrated, ultimately questioning the apparatus on which art history and art criticism have conventionally relied in their public faces. The essay advocates for an art history that does not feign objectivity, but rather leans into the often messy relationships between notable and not so notable figures in the "art world." What would art history look like if scholars and critics wrote forthrightly positioned as friends, confidants, enemies and lovers of artists? What does it mean to consider artists as collaborators and companions rather than "subjects" of art historical writings? By enacting these shifts, this letter performs a queering of art historical methodologies as they are currently known.

Department of Art & Art History Presents: Performance Artist, Josh T. Franco

Add to Calendar3:00 pm – 6:00 pm

Scriptorium con safos: Prologue is a 3-hour durational performance piece. The setting comprises a backdrop made from woven cornhusks, each individually inscribed with “C/S” and coated in beeswax. In front of this is a simple table, carrying a bowl of quartz crystal pebbles, a blank notebook, and red and black pens. Next to the table on the ground is a stack of books. The books are examples of those by Chicano authors banned in the states of Arizona and Texas in recent years. At the table sits the artist. He wears black pants, while his torso, arms and face are covered in red “C/S”’s. For three hours, he transcribes the banned books by hand. The audience is whoever walks by, and witnesses.   #scriptoriumconsafos#consafos #DePauwArt #Community #TalksAndArts
