Artist Package: OUTHERE (for Lee Lozano)

A program of:
Immaterial Architecture (online)

In advance of the live stream of OUTHERE (for Lee Lozano), a new work by Maïder Fortuné and Annie MacDonell, sign up to receive a package of reference material by mail.

Lee Lozano was an artist, a loner, a lover, a stoner, a drop out, a reader, a writer, a painter, a worm watcher, an anorexic, a masturbator, an art dreamer, a kilosopher, an agent of dis-ease, a monster, an infomaniac, an adventuress, a paranoiac.

Lozano was born November 5th, 1930, under the sign of Scorpio, and died October 2nd, 1999. She is best known for her paintings, her notebooks, and her radical life-art projects documented in her series of “Language Pieces”. Lozano’s work is concerned with time, physics, mathematics, sex, drugs, and the zodiac chart. 

In 1971, Lee Lozano gave a talk at NSCAD called “The Halifax 3 State Experiment.” Stretching over eight hours and across multiple locations, Lozano delivered the lecture in three states—sober, stoned on weed, and high on LSD. On the ninetieth anniversary of Lozano’s birth, Fortuné and MacDonell revisit this event in an attempt to burn a Lee-sized wormhole in the time/space continuum. The event will happen in three time-states: synchronous, asynchronous and polysynchronous. Sign up to get the asynchronous materials in advance of the event. Watch the live stream on the Art Museum’s website on November 5th, 12 – 9 p.m.

OUTHERE (for Lee Lozano) is part of Immaterial Architecture (online), the Art Museum’s newly commissioned series of projects for the screen-space.
