LECTURE: ANTHONY ELMS

Along with our friends at Ballroom Marfa, we hosted curator and writer, Anthony Elms, on Thursday, April 4th, 2013.  Elms, who is Associate Curator at the Institute of Contemporary Art, Philadelphia and the editor of WhiteWalls, an independent publisher distributed through the University of Chicago Press, will be talking about White Petals Surround Your Yellow Heart, which he recently presented in Philly.  The exhibition, which features Genesis P Orrige, Bernadette Corporation, Seth Price, Lynda Benglis, Dexter Sinister, Zoe Leonard, Erin Leland and Frances Stark, among still others, examines aspects of clothing, adornment and self-presentation within the context of identity made-visible and sometimes made-multiple or transformed. Elms has also been selected as one of three curators of the 2014 Whitney Biennial.  Elms' writing has appeared in Afterall, Art Asia Pacific, Artforum, Cakewalk, May Revue, Modern Painters, New Art Examiner and Time Out Chicago in addition to numerous catalogs and collections.
