Craig Owens

Our speaker for the Society’s opening meeting of the 1982-83 season will be the Senior Editor of Art in America, Craig Owens. A frequent lecturer, Mr. Owens was formerly Associate Editor of October magazine and has also taught at Hunter College and at the Institute of Architecture and Urban Studies in New York. As an art critic, Mr. Owen’s main interest is in a multi-disciplinary approach to contemporary art. His talk is relevant to the surveys of current art which have been available to most of us in 1982, for instance, the Art Institute’s “74th American Exhibition,” and most especially the European exhibitions “Documenta 7” and the Venice Biennale. Mr. Owen’s topic for the evening will be “The Loss of Reality in Contemporary European Art.”
