Dude. What are you doing tomorrow?

...because if you've got no plans, or even if you do, consider showing up at Artpace for a unique and deep day-long art event.

It starts with what they've billed as an "Artist Talk" with renowned installation artist Jim Hodges, whose large-scale works "Dont' Be Afraid" and "look and see" have expanded the contemporary-art notions of monuments and memorials.

It's not actually a talk, though; we're led to believe it's at east partially a video.
I went to Artpace this afternoon to talk to Hodges about the event, which is a participatory discussion and curation experience (I actually do not know what to call it) by Hodges of the work of his friend, the brilliant and controversial Felix Gonzales-Torres (November 26, 1957-January 9, 1996), whose statewide billboard installation is ongoing through December. (I wrote a little about it here.)

After the talk/video/discussion/performace, there will be a bus tour of the current flock of Gonzales-Torres billboards, which change both in location and in image every month. But don't take it from me...

Here's a sort of invitation by Jim Hodges, himself:



Hope to see y'all there!
