Noontime Art Talk: Toward an Antiestablishment Art: Bern Porter’s Founds

Tuesday, March 31, 2015,

Lower Jetté Gallery

Noontime Art talk by Mark Melnicove, poet, writer, and director of Joy Glows Where Confusion Ends: A Film About, With, and Without Bern Porter (2010)

Mark Melnicove, Bern Porter’s long-time publisher and performance art partner, will examine Porter’s methodology for creating found art and poetry. Melnicove will consider issues raised by the Founds, including the nature of originality and authorship, the appropriateness (legal, moral, etc.) of appropriative art and writing, and the implications–cultural and political–of Porter’s steadfast refusal to keep within the bounds of aesthetic propriety.
