Chris Kraus Keynote Lecture
MUMA is honoured to present a keynote lecture by filmmaker, writer and editor Chris Kraus as part of the Chris Kraus exhibition opening at MUMA on Thursday 13th October..
In 2011, the New York Times described Kraus as ‘one of our smartest and most original writers on contemporary art and culture’; and her novel I Love Dick was cited by Frieze magazine as one of the most important books of the past two decades.
Following the recent publication of Where Art Belongs, Semiotext(e) 2011, Chris Kraus presents a new lecture of expanded art and cultural criticism.
Chris Kraus is the author of Video Green: Los Angeles Art and The Triumph of Nothingness and the novels Aliens and Anorexia, I Love Dick, and Torpor. Kraus is the founding editor of the Semiotext(e) series ‘Native Agents’; writes regularly for Artforum, and teaches at the European Graduate School. She was 2007 recipient of the Frank Mather Award in Art Criticism, a 2010 Warhol Foundation Arts Writer’s grant, and has most recently published a collection of expanded art criticism, Where Art Belongs, with a forthcoming novel Summer Of Hate due for release.
Date: Friday 14 October 6.00 – 7.30pm
Venue: Village Roadshow Theatre, State Library of Victoria, (enter via Entry 3 – La Trobe Street)
