Rapid Fire Art History / Cornish

I sure wish I was in town for this presentation tomorrow (Wed, 3/7). As part of their Sustenance series, Cornish College of the Arts will be presenting a lunch time discussion that breaks down the past few thousand years of art in a matter of minutes. Moderated by Sharon Arnold, the Rapid Fire Art History: What We Know vs. What We Make panel consists of Jim Demetre, Amanda Manitach, Stephen Sewell, and Rodrigo Valenzuela. 
In this fast-paced presentation, four guests will wrap up several thousand years of history in 3-5 minute segments. Ranging from the Ancient Greeks to today, this rapid-fire survey will demonstrate a potentially unfair and heavily interpreted version of art history from a personal perspective; possibly with an element of fiction. Join us in discovering a more unconventional take on art history, and participate in a discussion about how art history affects art practice- is it relevant, is it nonsense, what does too much knowledge of art history lead to, should/can we avoid it, and more!
While you're there, you should pop downstairs to the Main Gallery and check out Jon Gierlich's exhibition.
