Featuring ART & LANGUAGE’s Mel Ramsden and Michael Baldwin in conversation with Mayo Thompson of The Red Crayola. Moderated by Dominic Molon the Richard Brown Baker Curator of Contemporary Art at the Rhode Island School of Design Museum.
Examining the relationship between Conceptual Art and rock and roll music, this panel delves into the collaboration between ART & LANGUAGE and the experimental rock band Red Krayola which began with Mayo Thompson in 1967. Moderated by Dominic Molon, whose exhibition Sympathy for the Devil: Art and Rock and Roll Since 1967 took place at the MCA in 2007, the discussion will focus on the improbable yet historically fruitful relationship between a music genre associated with intensity and excess and an approach within the contemporary visual arts defined by rigorously reductive and administrative aesthetic.
