The Society for Contemporary Art at the Art Institute of Chicago presents
THURSDAY, JANUARY 26, 2011
6:00 p.m. Lecture, “No Good (Except Historical)”: A talk about the
beauty of failure
Price Auditorium, The Art Institute of Chicago
Please use the Michigan Ave entrance
Joseph Grigely will lecture on a topic from his forthcoming book
Textualterity 2. As he describes, “Our culture is obsessed with
perfection, it loves the masterpiece, it adores virtuosity, but
perfection and masterpieces and virtuosity all evolve at the expense
of failure—things that go wrong and create in the process
opportunities from which beauty emerges, sometimes in the most
impossible of ways.” Examples discussed in the talk will include poems
and paintings, as well as perfumes, diamonds, and trout flies, and the
complex place of failure in the making of art forms like these.
