Performance: John Cage: How to Get Started, 1989-, curated by the John Cage Trust, Bard College and the Slought Foundation, Performed on the 30th of October Museum of Contemporary Art: Detroit. 2016. Recorded Live.

Michael Stone-Richards, professor of critical practice and visual studies, College for Creative Studies, Detroit, and editor, Detroit Research, presents the lecture “Negation and Disavowal in Spatial Politics” at 6:00 p.m. via Zoom as part of the Rice Architecture Fall 2020 Lecture Series.

Drawing on the work of Detroit artists Scott Hocking and Carlos Diaz, amongst others, in "Negation and Disavowal in Spatial Politics," Michael Stone-Richards explores the way in which erasure and camouflage in public space and monuments attest to the work or modes of political and cultural unconscious in racial politics and what he calls the politics of attention - the question of Why now? posed by the killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis.

All lectures are free and open to the public. Please be sure to register online for each lecture to receive the link to join. For more information on all lectures and to register to attend, visit arch.rice.edu/latest/events and ricedesignalliance.org.
