What is an artist talk?

Late last year, during the run of Draftsmen of the Apocalypse, CentralTrak hosted an artist talk with Thor Johnson and Joachim West that was more performance than analytical discussion of their work. But it some ways, it encouraged more productive conversation than most artist talks. After all, What Is An Artist Talk? Ah, that is the question. And will be the subject at CentralTrak’s NEXT TOPIC series at 7 p.m. Thursday. Daniel Atkinson programs the artist talks at the Contemporary Arts Museum in Houston, which gives him insight into the different forms and functions of these regularly programmed events. Hear him discuss the history and importance of the convention at CentralTrak (800 Exposition Ave.). Admission is free. More information at centraltrak.net.
