Why Narrative Is Still Worth Talking About
Wed, Oct 16, 2002 4:30 PM
David Antin's presentation offers a radical theory of narrative developed out of his interest in neurology and cognitive studies. Known for his "talk pieces"Ûimprovisational blends of comedy, story, and social commentaryÛAntin is a performance artist, critic, curator, and award-winning writer who has received fellowships from the Guggenheim Foundation and the National Endowment for the Humanities and awards including the PEN Los Angeles Award for Poetry in 1984.
He has performed at museums around the world including The Museum of Modern Art in New York and the Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris, and he's published several books and collections of poetry including Talking at the Boundaries (1976), Tuning (1984), PoÀmes Parl»s (1985), and What It Means to Be Avant-Garde (1993). He is an emeritus professor of visual arts at the University of California at San Diego.

Cosponsored by Columbus College of Art & Design and Ohio State's Center for Folklore Studies, Department of Art, Department of English, Department of History of Art, Department of Theatre, and Wexner Center.
