STUCK UP review and two upcoming conferences

Another great outcome from CAA 2012:  I was invited to write a review of DB Burkeman’s traveling exhibition STUCK UP: A Selected History of Alternative & Pop Culture Told Through Stickers for the Journal of Curatorial Studies.  The show premiered at the SCOPE Art Fair in Miami last December and has traveled to Chicago and the 323East Gallery in Detroit.  You can catch it next at the New Bedford Art Museum and UGLY Gallery, Rhode Island (opening April 21, 2012).

The journal deadline was tight, which is why I haven’t been blogging lately.  That, plus I learned that two papers of mine have been accepted for conferences later this year: Return to the Street at Goldsmiths, University of London, and Riot, Revolt, Revolution at the University of Brighton, UK.  This line really caught my eye in the call-for-papers for the Goldsmiths conference:

“Considering this ‘return’ (although it is questionable whether we every really left the street), how might a line be drawn between the type of discourse which pays lip service to banal, neoliberal fetishised notions of street as site and object of subversive cool – incorporating graffiti, fashion, skateboarding, hiphop – and a more critical and engaged examination of processes of exclusion, confrontation and violence which constitute the everyday reality of life on and in the street.”
