Robert Crouch | Notes on Looking

Stealing from my friends: Robert Crouch for LACE – a selection, with links

LACE Associate Director/Curator Robert Crouch is in Poland. (Dude has been home for a week and he doesn’t call?? wtf? In any case, Robert Crouch will be giving us and LACE text, images and vids of sound and art in Krakow and Budapest soon.) Tease that I am, I’ve grabbed some content(s) from LACE’s Tumblr site and posted them below. Links everywhere to LACE’s site – have fun!

I’ve had a few conversations about this gender issue with Montreal artist France Jobin, who has taken the stance that she’d rather be the one of few women at an otherwise all male event than perform in a feminist identified program (which she’s also participated and attended). She believes that it allows her to maintain the integrity of her practice and concerns as a structuralist, and simultaneously produce a rupture in the obvious phallocentricity of the festival by her mere presence and quality of her work. In other words, yeah she’s a girl and she’s better than the boys. Really. And such was the case with Laurel Halo the other night. One of few women at this festival, and she just killed it. It was one of those performances where I didn’t need to bother to see anything the rest of the night. Sorry guys, she kinda ruined it for the rest of you. -RC 4 LACE Thursday October 20,...
