On Sunday, December 2nd, 2012, Maximus Clarke and Kim Holleman present their work at the Artist Lecture Series in Greenpoint, Brooklyn.
Maximus Clarke will offer a survey of the digitally-mediated art he has produced -– including site-specific video, stereoscopic photography, and interactive web-based works. Many of these pieces center on the ways in which we locate ourselves, both in our physical surroundings and within our cultural constructs.
He will also review one of his major creative projects over the last decade: a satirical multimedia interrogation of authoritarianism, under the name Maxx Klaxon.
In this guise, Clarke writes and produces ‘retrofuturist’ electropop, creates interactive video projections, and performs in character as an aspiring dictator. He uses the iconography of revolutionary and totalitarian propaganda to examine the ways in which elements of government and society advance reactionary, paranoid narratives.
The Artist Lecture Series invites two artists per month to present and discuss their work in an informal setting, allowing questions and feedback from the their peers and enthusiasts alike. The series is curated and hosted by Michael Lee, Zoe Pettijohn Schade, and Christopher Schade, at their studios in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, NY.
