Art’s Birthday Buffet
January 16, 2021
Neutral Ground & Dunlop Art Gallery present: Art’s Birthday Buffet – An all-you-can-eat feast of remote-access art’s birthday content. Official radio partner – 91.3FM CJTR, Regina Community Radio.
Arts Birthday is an annual, international celebration of art, coined by Fluxus artist Robert Filliou (1926-1987)who produced works as a filmmaker, “action poet,” sculptor, and happenings maestro. In 1963, Filliou proclaimed that art was born when a dry sponge was dropped into a bucket of water 1,000,000 years prior. He suggested that a public holiday be established, to celebrate the role that art plays in our everyday lives. By Filliou’s metric, 2021 marks Art’s 1,000,058th birthday. Come celebrate Art, with this year’s remotely presented buffet of artistic delicacies.
MENU OF EVENTS:
*2 – 3pm – WHISPERED ART HISTORY: Clive Robertson (Kingston) and Craig Leonard (Halifax) and Judit Bodor (Glasgow) animate a public discussion on the influence and early example of Filliou’s critical and poetic praxis on developments of artists collectives, spaces and alternative practices.
