Corporeal Texture: New ways to 'Get Art'

"Visualizing Feeling: Affect and the Feminine Avant-garde" is one of the driving forces behind this conference.

Many people walk into a contemporary art gallery or museum believing that they are not smart enough to 'get it.' While many contemporary artists do utilize complex theories about art, there are other ways to understand art than theories.

The Corporeal Texture Conference is a graduate student-led conference that will take place on March 1st at the University of Cincinnati.  The conference focuses on how viewers interact with a work of art on a sensory or bodily level.  The speakers at this conference will discuss the various ways textures and surfaces play in how we view or experience art.

Pure Predication: Dead Boy

With song titles like "Dead Boy," "Poison Oak," and "Devil's Weed," and the run-time is a mere 5:07, you can expect the 3-track EP Dead Boy by Pure Predication to be driving, aggressive, dark and brutal.
