Classroom Lecture Series

A series of four talks given at our exhibition, "The Classroom," at PDX Contemporary Art, in Portland, Oregon, during July of 2010. The exhibition featured a collection of pedagogical props which the lecturers — Anne Marie Oliver, Sean Regan, Helen Reed, and Barry Sanders — used in their talks.

The book A Classroom Reader is the physical trace of those public events: a meditation on education through the subjects of mediology, metaphor, gift-giving, transmission, tradition, death, and the imagination. It features an introduction by the artists, the texts of the lectures, and a dozen B/W images of instructional illustrations drawn on the Standing Chalkbox sculpture by each of the four speakers.
