Rice lecture will discuss art exhibit featuring posters and album covers
Chicago gallerist, curator and music historian John Corbett will speak on Thursday, Sept. 8, at the Rice Media Center.
Corbett will speak at the opening of an exhibit of printed material, including posters and album covers, by contemporary artists Albert Oehlen and Christopher Wool. His lecture will focus on the significance of music in Oehlen's and Wool's work, and will examine these musical connections in detail, starting with the clearest and most literal aspects of their encounters with music.
Oehlen was a member of the Houston-born group the Red Krayola in the 1990s, and he worked as a producer and designer for records by a wide assortment of people from wildly divergent musical genres. Wool had a direct relationship with various musicians, primarily in jazz and improvised music, as well as the burgeoning punk and No Wave scenes that he encountered when he moved to New York in the late 1970s.
Corbett will also screen a rarely seen short film that Wool made, set to music by saxophonist Ornette Coleman.
Corbett’s lecture, which is open to the public, will be held at 7 p.m. The Media Center is located on the Rice campus, 6100 Main.
The Oehlen/Wool exhibit is on display until Friday, Oct. 14.
