In a free, public lecture Jarrett Earnest will discuss the idiosyncrasies of color as we experience it out in the world and in our lives, including discussions of cyanobacteria, stained glass, the abbot Suger of St. Denis, Anna Betbeze, and All That Heaven Allows. The focus will be on color in time; fugitive, wandering color; on colors as Light’s children—a family melodrama.
Jarrett Earnest is a writer living in New York City. He teaches and is faculty liaison at the free experimental art school the Bruce High Quality Foundation University (BHQFU); and is co-founder of the alternative art space 1:1 in the lower east side (2011-2012). His criticism and long-form interviews have appeared in the Brooklyn Rail, The Village Voice, Art in America, San Francisco Arts Quarterly, Art Practical, and many other publications.
