Thom Donvan for Nonsite this Sunday / Yrs Truly July 25

Here's the Nonsite Collective announcement for the talk/discussion/workshop I'll be giving as part of Nonsite Collective's summer series/curriculum, "Project on the Commons." I'll be giving a house reading in the Bay area with Rob Halpern on the 24th.  Thx much to Rob, Taylor Brady, Michael Cross, David Brazil, & others Nonsite affiliates for inviting & hosting me.

Please join us Sunday, July 25th at 2 PM for the third installment of the Nonsite Collective's summer suite: David Wolach on "The Commons and the Body". Wolach will lead a discussion linking ideas around embodied art practices, the commons, and illness.

Through the lens of living with chronic pain, Wolach will draw out the relation(s) between the physico-socially "unfit" body and the aesthetically trans-gressive body.  How might the affective and relational capacities of the body inflect our thinking about "the commons"? How can recent discussions on the paradoxes of "ownership", "property", and "architecture" inform how we speak about and treat "the body"?

David has posted some preliminary notes and questions here. 

In addition, he has contributed a more sustained set of reflections to the Project on the Commons workbook, where he also introduces himself and his work.

We'll meet promptly at 2:00 pm on Sunday 7/25 at Nicole Hollis Studios to begin the discussion: 

935 Natoma Street, San Francisco
between 10th and 11th Streets
and between Mission and Howard
close to the Civic Center BART Station
and the Van Ness MUNI station

Hope to see you there!
