Saturday lectures

There's something for everyone on Saturday, especially in terms of great lectures. Unfortunately, I really want to see all three of these.

Noah Grussgott

If you're hungry and want a yummy crepe with your lecture, swing by Grey Gallery and Lounge from 1-3pm. Noah Grussgott will be discussing his current show, Caution Kid, and be available to answer questions about his work. He's great, the show is great and who doesn't like crepes?

Davidson Galleries will be hosting an artist talk by John Grade from 2-4pm. The artist will be discussing his current work and how it relates to future work. I'd love to see this.

Tomorrow night, the Frye Art Museum is hosting a member's preview of The Puppet Show. This show looks great. It includes pieces by Kara Walker, William Kentridge, Nayland Blake, Louise Bourgeois and many more. It's cocurated by Carin Kuoni and Ingrid Schaffner. Ingrid also cocurated Dirt on Delight at ICA, Philadelphia which included such greats as Lucio Fontana, Nicole Cherubini and Jeffry Mitchell.

On Saturday, beginning at 2pm, Ingrid Schaffner will be discussing the imagery of puppets in contemporary art in her presentation, Backstage at the Puppet Show. Call (206) 432-8289 to reserve your seat.
