This week Susanna Crum, local artist and Museum Administrator at 21c, selected Christian Marclay’s, “The Clock” for our interpretation. The MoMA has a wonderful description of the piece on their website, “Winner of the Golden Lion award at the 2011 Venice Biennale, Christian Marclay’s The Clock is a cinematic tour de force that unfolds on the screen in real time through thousands of film excerpts that form a 24-hour montage. Appropriated from the last 100 years of cinema’s rich history, the film clips chronicle the hours and minutes of the 24-hour period, often by displaying a watch or clock. The Clock incorporates scenes of everything from car chases and board rooms to emergency wards, bank heists, trysts, and high-noon shootouts.”
Susanna Crum & Rudy Salgado Jr. will be featured at December’s Food for Thought: Lunch & Learn. Susanna was the recipient of the inaugural Hadley Prize, presented by the LVAA and the Community Foundation of Louisville. This $5,000 award went to one local visual artist to participate in enrichment experiences to help pursue their personal ambitions and achieve their full artistic potential. The presentation will highlight the pair’s work as artists both individually and in collaboration, their plans for creating a print shop (and the importance of the local community in the decision to move to Louisville), and a discussion of how, even in works that are attributed solely to one of them, the other has played an integral role.
Food For Thought will be held December 10, 2013, Noon-1:30pm at the Louisville Boat Club, 4200 River Road. $25 for LVAA members, $35 for non-members, price includes lunch, dessert, and beverage. Pre-paid reservations must be made by Friday, December 6. Please call 584-8166 x100. Walk-ins welcome after 12:30 (no lunch), $10.
