DOMINGO CASTILLO & ELIZABETH SHANNON
DAZED AND CONFUSED: THOUGHTS ON BOREDOM
 
Domingo Castillo and Liz Shannon think laziness is important to making good art. In consideration of ideas from figures such as Paul Lafargue, Robert Louis Stevenson, Virginia Woolf, Bertrand Russell, Simone De Beauvoir, Marcel Duchamp, and Mladen Stilinovic, they intend to disagree about how and why laziness is important to the process of being creative.

COMMON FIELD
GENTRIFICATION AND SUSTAINING NEIGHBORHOODS
 
If you are engaged in the art world, you have probably witnessed, and contributed to, gentrification in some form. In anticipation of the Common Field Convening in Miami in October, where this topic will be discussed from a local and national perspective, we invite you to engage with an invited group of speakers with various experiences of, and stances on, gentrification and sustaining neighborhoods.
