Author Carlo McCormick to Lecture on Art & Intoxication at Other Criteria NYC

October 28, 2014 by Mary

Other Criteria are pleased to announce a lecture with author and critic Carlo McCormick on October 28th 2014. Art & Intoxication, will examine the parallels and intersections of “getting high” and art making.

McCormick promises to “run riot through the ages” with a talk that will uncover and assess the role and impact of substance use and abuse on the creative output of cave painters, classical Greco-Roman and Egyptian practitioners, as well as established art stars ranging from Michelangelo, Velasquez, and Bosch through Steichen, Picasso, and Warhol to Chris Burden, Jeff Koons and many, many more. According to the author “Few things seem more endemic to the human condition than the creation of art and the search for intoxication.”

Carlo McCormick is a culture critic and curator living in New York City. He is the author of numerous books, monographs and catalogues on contemporary art and artists. McCormick lectures and teaches extensively at universities and colleges around the United States on popular culture and art. His writing has appeared in Aperture, Art in America, Art News, Artforum, High Times, Paper, Vice and other magazines. McCormick has curated many exhibitions including The Downtown Show: the New York Art Scene from 1974 to 1984.

Other Criteria was founded in 2005 with the aim of bringing affordable art of the highest quality to a wide audience. Other Criteria collaborates closely with established and emerging artists and designers on a wide range of unique and inspired objects including books, prints, photographs, sculptural works and jewellery.
