JK KELLER AND KEETRA DEAN DIXON

7:00 PM
Wednesday, Feb 10th

Between the Two
Wednesday, February 10, 2016
Doors open at 6:30 p.m.
Lecture begins at 7:00 p.m.
Mary Harris Auditorium on the RMCAD campus

This event is FREE and open to the public. Please RSVP here.


The first Visiting Artist, Scholar, and Designer Program presentation of 2016 features JK Keller and Keetra Dean Dixon—two multidisciplinary artists/designers working collaboratively and independently in Homer, AK. For Keller and Dixon, humor is a common coping mechanism and offers occasion for merriment in failings and futility in their creative work. Their lecture will discuss the importance of intentional and accidental misinterpretation as a means of understanding the contemporary human condition.

With a foothold in graphic design and creative direction, Dixon’s work expands to involve objects, installation, and product design. Her projects are spurred by the fallibility of communication, attempts at connection, and unintended output. Dixon received the honorable ranking of Art Director’s Club (ADC) Young Gun and her clients include New York Times, among others. She acted as Design Director for installations at the Venice Architecture Biennale, and has shown at the Walker Art Center and the Smithsonian Design Museum.

Keller is attracted to the uneasy tension generated by our ubiquitous use of technology. His work utilizes entertaining misuses of technology and failures of communication that result from brute-force manipulations of appropriated material and rules-based systems. Keller received acclaimed attention for his ongoing series consisting of a self-portrait taken every day for the past 17 years called The Adaptation to My Generation and digital manipulation via an algorithm of The Simpsons, among other projects. Keller's work has been exhibited at the Walker Art Center and the 2012 transmediale in Berlin among other locations.

MIRANDA JULY

This event is SOLD OUT

On-Stage Conversation with Lanny DeVuono
Thursday, April 14, 2016
Doors open at 6 p.m.
Lecture begins at 7 p.m.
Mary Harris Auditorium on the RMCAD campus


About the Event
The VASD Program is honored to close out the year’s Humor series by hosting Miranda July in an on-stage conversation with Lanny Frances DeVuono. The discussion will focus on July’s use of humor, which employs a complexity of emotion that exposes something deep and raw about our humanity, communities, and relationships.

About Miranda July
July’s work has exhibited widely, including at the Museum of Modern Art, the Venice Biennale, and in two Whitney Biennials. July wrote, directed, and starred in two, feature-length, award winning films: The Future and Me and You and Everyone We Know. Her fiction has been published in The Paris Review, The New Yorker, and many other publications, and collected in the book No One Belongs Here More Than You. Her New York Times Bestselling novel The First Bad Man was published last year. July has created a number of interactive works, including web and email-based projects, a geosocial networking app, and her recent participatory performance titled New Society.

About Lanny Frances DeVuono
DeVuono is a Denver-based artist, art writer, and associate professor of painting and drawing at the University of Colorado Denver. DeVuono has received numerous awards for her work, including a Fulbright Fellowship and a Grants for Artist Projects (GAP) Grant. She has written about contemporary art in past publications, including Art News and New Art Examiner. Drawings by DeVuono are currently on view at the Museum of Contemporary Art Denver through June 5, 2016 in the exhibition titled Critical Focus: Lanny DeVuono. More information is available at MCADenver.org.

Humor Lecture Series
An Evening with Miranda July is the seventh and final presentation in the VASD Program’s yearlong Humor series. Throughout fall 2015 and spring 2016, the series has focused on the application of comedy, parody, irony, play, and wit as instruments of communication and experimentation in art, design, and culture. As a fundamental element of the human experience, humor crosses nations and histories. Humor exists in a boundary-blurring space where joy and anguish meet, allowing creators to reveal the severity and ridiculousness of contemporary life.
