The Revenge of Mimicry - rsvp required - Firestone Room
6:00 in Mathey's Firestone Room
How does art survive in an age of digital reproduction? How are contemporary artists using computer generated images as a medium? What can art tell us about the nature of the digital image and its consequences for our world? Join the Writers Studio at Mathey next week for a dinnertime discussion with two contemporary artists.
The Revenge of Mimicry: Contemporary art & the digital image Jeffrey Stuker in conversation with Kurt Kauper 6:00 - 7.30pm Dinner provided. RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Jeffrey Stuker works principally with digital images. His most recent project concerns the Fulgora Laternaria, a moth which evolved an incandescent protrusion, apparently, in imitation of the crocodile. Stuker is also the translator of The Mask, an early essay by the sociologist Roger Caillois, and other texts from French. He has taught as a lecturer at Wesleyan University and Yale University School of Art. In 2015 Stuker has had solo exhibitions at Full Haus Gallery in Los Angeles (Critic's Pick in Artforum) and Sushi Bar Gallery in New York.
Kurt Kauper is a painter whose work has, for the past fifteen years, been images of familiar cultural icons—opera divas, Cary Grant, hockey players, and Barack and Michelle Obama—seen in a variety of unfamiliar ways. Kauper began teaching at Princeton in 2010, and is also a Professor of Art at Queens College, CUNY.

The play revisits the famed Bettencourt case that involved many important public figures in France and represents documentary theater very well.

Students will work on scenes from some of Shakespeare's and Tennesse Williams' greatest works, as well as other playwrights. - Interested students must contact Florent Masse at email@example.com to express their interest in the work-in-progress reading and/or workshop, or for any questions.
