This year’s occupant of Evergreen's Daniel J. Evans Chair in Liberal Arts is Thierry de Duve, a historian and philosopher of art. He is Professor Emeritus from the University of Lille 3, and was Kirk Varnedoe Visiting Professor at the Institute of Fine Arts, New York University, for the fall semester of 2013. His English publications include Pictorial Nominalism(1991), Kant after Duchamp (1996), Clement Greenberg Between the Lines (1996, 2010), Look—100 Years of Contemporary Art (2001), and Sewn In the Sweatshops of Marx: Beuys, Warhol, Klein, Duchamp (2012). Recently, he finished a book of essays on aesthetics, forthcoming from the University of Chicago Press.
 
Thierry will be at Evergreen weeks 3, 4 and 5. He's scheduled to deliver two public talks on campus and one at the Seattle Art Museum. He will also be teaching in the programs, It’s About Time (faculty Greg Mullins, Shaw Osha and Trevor Speller) and Structures and Strictures: Fiction, Mathematics and Philosophy (faculty Kathleen Eamon, Steven Hendricks, Toshitami Matsumoto and Brian Walter). These talks will be based on the six articles he published in Art Forum last year. 
 
At Evergreen, he will give two public talks, one on Monday, 1/26 from 5:30-7:30 pm as part of the Critical and Cultural Theory series and a second on Wednesday, 2/4 from 11:30-1:00 pm as part of the Art Lecture Series (we expect this to be quite full). 
 
In Seattle, Thierry will be giving a lecture at SAM on Thursday, 1/22.

"Imaginary Places" with Irina Gendelman

Imaginary Places
PLATO Lecture Series Spring, 2014

The Evergreen State College

Irina Gendelman, Ph.D. and Jeff Birkenstein, Ph.D. – St. Martin’s University

Poet Charles Pierre Baudelaire wrote about the flâneur, a perfect spectator, an impassioned observer, a character who is away from home and yet who feels at home, who is in the midst of the world and at the same time hidden from it. Baudelaire’s flâneur, a person of some means who had the time to be idle, spent his leisure time wandering the streets of Paris and observing the life of the street.

We apply this idea to the modern observer of the world. Like Baudelaire’s flâneur, the modern wanderer is something of a hidden observer, at once within the world and outside of it, even as she is now time tethered to digital technologies such as Facebook, Instagram and digital cameras.  The digital camera (and the internet applications on which its images are shared) acts as an extension of the flâneur’s body, a cyborg eye and a cyborg memory. It sees, frames and captures observations to be selectively shared as visual artifacts. With this extension, the flâneur, the spectator, also becomes a creator of new digital spaces to be explored. As modern wanderers, we record and reproduce the physical world as we see it, even as we alter that space through our digital images.

By recording, archiving, and looking at images of food and art, we will discuss these new and ever-evolving realms of imaginary spaces and how they reflect – and are reflected by – our understanding of observed reality.
