WOJNAROWICZ — LOTRINGER — SCEMAMA

Following a screening of DAVID WOJNAROWICZ—A CONVERSATION WITH SYLVÈRE LOTRINGER AND MARION SCEMAMA, Lotringer and Amy Scholder will join Hedi El Kholti for a conversation about Scemama’s film and Wojnarowicz’s life and work.*

The film intercuts footage from Lotringer‘s extensive 1989 interview with Wojnarowicz—itself filmed by Scemama—with documents from the artist’s estate and papers, and Scemama’s personal archives.

GARY INDIANA IN LOS ANGELES

“In 1985, the Village Voice offered me a job as senior art critic. This made my life easier and lousy at the same time. I now had to actually enter all those galleries instead of peeking in the windows.” — Gary IndianaVile Days

Indiana’s art reviews for the Voice—collected and republished as Vile Days: The Village Voice Art Columns, 1985–1988—combine “his novelistic and theatrical gifts with a startling political acumen to assess art and the unruly environments that give it context.”

Indiana will give this week’s graduate art lecture at ArtCenter’s Hillside Campus.

In mid-January he will read from Vile Days and present the Michael Haneke film Happy End (2017) at a Hard to Read event in West Hollywood.

HOLY SHIT — SOLID RAIN

The new Matt Fishbeck/Holy Shit album SOLID RAIN is out on vinyl, and will be followed by a second Fishbeck release later this year. SOLID RAIN is the first musical release from Semiotext(e), and the album’s liner notes are by Ariana Reines.

“Putting out the record for us now that L.A. is rapidly changing into a gentrification nightmare is a way to acknowledge how important Matt has been to Semiotext(e) in the last 10 years. It’s kind of a missing piece in that history.” — Semiotext(e) co-editor Hedi El Kholti*
