Dr. Michael Corris is an artist, art historian, and writer on art. He was a member of the Conceptual art group Art & Language, 1972-1976, a founding editor of The Fox and Red-Herring, and an editor of Transmission Annual. Corris’s writings on contemporary art have been widely published in international journals and magazines, including Art Monthly, Artforum, Art History, and art+text. Also recognized for his thorough and thoughtful coverage of the artist Ad Reinhardt in the 2008 book by the same name, Corris’s most recent publication is a book he wrote with John Dixon Hunt and David Lomas on the use of language in art, Art, Word, and Image: 2000 Years of Visual/Textual Interaction, published in 2010. Each author contributed their take on the topic of art, word, and image in individual essays. Corris’s interpretation serves as the subject of this Tuesday Evenings presentation, NO FREE READING: Interpreting Contemporary Art, Word and Image, drawing examples from the past ten years with some detours to the 1960s.
At 5 p.m. preceding this presentation, Corris will be available for a book signing of Art, Word, and Image 2000: Years of Visual/Textual Interaction in the Museum lobby.
