Howard Fried's lecture

November 21, 1984

Video, performance and installation art will be the topic of a lecture to be given by the chairman of the video/performance department of the San Francisco Art Institute at 5:30 p.m., Thursday, Nov. 29, in room 103 Mandeville Center, at the University of California, San Diego.

Artist Howard Fried is known for works which are intentionally designed to question the validity of closed systems of perception, conceptualization and communication as expressed through art. By purposefully placing his audience in situations which give rise to ambiguity and paradox, Fried raises questions about philosophy, information processing and contemporary art.

As a prelude to Howard Fried's lecture, visiting faculty member Chip Lord will show a video tape by Fried at 6:30 p.m., Tuesday, Nov. 27, in room 103 Mandeville Center. The public is invited to attend. For more information contact Mary Anne Cooper at 452-2862.
