What Are You Up To on November 19, 2010 at 10am!? Come to the San Diego Museum of Art, Balboa Park

I am going to be delivering a piece from my new book EYEGIENE as part of a lecture series at the San Diego Museum of Art, SDMA on the morning of November 19, 2010.  And it is absolutely free to SDSU students--show your ID at the door!

The title?

I/Eye Object! Between Visuality and Subjectivity Whilst Prowling the Galleries of SDMA

It will feature a discussion of works presently on display at the museum including Alfredo Ramos Martinez, Diego Rivera, Salvador Dali, Charles White, Andy Warhol, Raúl Anguiano, Hieronymus Bosch, Giuseppe de Gobbis, Honore Daumier, Henri Matisse and more--here are the works I am focused on for the presentation!

Whether you are a dyed-in-the-wool art lover and a newcomer to museums and art, there should be lots for you to see and think about at the lecture.
