Right. This is the most entertaining thing I’ve read all week. Congressman Louis Gohmert, of Tyler, TX, is very, very concerned that someone at Google is reading his email.
Meanwhile, back at the ranch, we have British artist and longtime critic Matthew Collings, who has written books with excellent names such as Blimey and This Is Modern Art. He’ll give a talk this evening at the Nasher Sculpture Center as part of their regular 360 conversation series with artists, curators, and the like. From what I understand, he’s quite frank, which should make this discussion of contemporary art even more fun. He’s here in conjunction with his upcoming show at Fort Worth Contemporary Arts, a joint exhibition with his wife and frequent collaborator, Emma Biggs. Just make sure you RSVP to the Nasher at 360RSVP@nashersculpturecenter.org to guarantee yourself a seat.
Also this evening, Dallas Museum of Art senior curator Dr. Rosalyn Walker kicks of TeCo Theatre‘s own discussion series. It’s a partnership with Big Thought called “Conscious, Intelligent Thought, & Commentary,” and the line up over the next couple of months sounds quite interesting. They’ll have everyone from theater folk to former Dallas Cowboys. Dr. Walker, who authored the DMA’s catalogue The Arts of Africa, will discuss feminine images and African art, her particular curatorial focus at the museum. I always like Mesa, but you know where I haven’t been lately? Jonathon’s. They serve breakfast all day, which I love, but that chicken pot pie sounds good, too.
For more to do tonight, go here.
