Rick Poynor: Design Criticism Lecture @ SVA.

Focusing on the exhibition that Rick Poynor devised for the Moravian Gallery in Brno, this lecture will examine curating as an extension of writing and editing practices. What are the crucial similarities and differences between selection for the two-dimensional page and the space of the gallery? Poynor will consider Surrealism as a theme—why explore this topic now?—and place “Uncanny” in the international context of the many other shows on Surrealist art. He will explore how the exhibition relates to the paths of inquiry he has pursued in his critical writing and address its broader polemical purpose.
