IMAGE, SEQUENCE AND SERIES NATHAN LYONS

The workshop will explore narrative and non narrative visual structures. How the context of images can reinforce a comprehensive strategy in the development of one's own working methods will be investigated, as well as the development of project-based concerns that are to be presented in exhibition or book form. Participants should come prepared to shoot and make contact sheets on a daily basis.

Nathan Lyons, Founder and Director Emeritus of the Visual Studies Workshop, has curated and been included in numerous exhibitions over the past forty-five years. He is the author and editor of many books, including two sequences of his own photographic work, Notations in Passing and Riding First Class on the Titanic. He has recently had solo exhibitions at the Addison Museum of American Art, the George Eastman House, The Houston Center for Photography, the International Center for Photography and the Howard Greenberg Gallery in NYC. Lyons is currently working on a third book, entitled After 9/11, to be published in the Fall of this year.

PRINTED PRANKS AND PROTEST: ARTIST-ACTIVIST PUBLICATIONS MARSHALL WEBER

Artist/curator Marshall Weber opens his extensive archive of thirty years of innovative printed materials designed to provoke, disturb and disrupt the status quo to hands-on exploration. He provides a veritable feast of tasty tools and tactics for creative dissent of great interest to both artists working in printed matter and to activists trying to get the word out. Billboard manipulation, books, emails, forgeries, handouts, posters, public signage, simulacra, stickers, 'zines, and other forms of both creation and manipulation of printed material will be explored. Classroom presentations in numerous media will be accompanied by class and individual culturejamming projects.

Marshall Weber was a founder, in 1989, of Artists Television Access in San Francisco and of the Brooklyn Artists Alliance in 1999. As a curator, Weber designs national multi-site collaborations that bring together artists, social service organizations and the public to explore issues of social justice. He has organized projects concerning gentrification and housing rights ("Who's the Landlord?," San Francisco, New York, 1989-1991), penal reform ("Correcting Corrections," Wisconsin, 1994-1997) and is now directing "... even the birds were on fire ..." a tour of artworks by New York artists responding to the aftermath of 9/11. His work in book art, collage, poetry, performance/installation, and video focuses on creating intimate and tactile anti-spectacles as antidotes to the manipulative virtual spectacles of corporate culture. He is best known for his endurance performance work, including a solo recitation of the entire Bible in eighty hours.
