Radial Survey Conversations: The Once and Future Past

For our final Radial Survey Conversation Anita Bateman, Associate Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, will moderate a virtual conversation with exhibition's artist, Anique Jordan and Jay Simple centered around her catalog essay The Once and Future Past. (Page 58.)

Each artist will share their projects from the show and the moderator will lead a conversation with the artists on the big themes, small details, and connections and between the work discussed. Then there will be an opportunity for questions and answers and open discussion among the attendees.

Using the Radial Survey Vol. 2 catalog essays as a jumping off point, this free virtual reading group will meet regularly for three sessions, covering one topic each meeting. A rotating group of guest artists, curators and writers will facilitate each meeting, bringing their own perspectives, specialties and selection of images for consideration along with the texts.
