Musagetes and Contemporary Art Forum Kitchener and Area (CAFKA) are delighted to announce the first Big Ideas in Art and Culture Lecture of 2012: artist and creative activist Steve Lambert on May 22 at 7. Steve will be introducing us to his practice–some of his better-known projects are a “Special Edition” of The New York Times, which preemptively announced the end of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan following the 2008 American election and SelfControl, an application which blocks grownups from distracting websites so they can get work done. He has collaborated with well-known art collectives such as the Yes Men and the Graffiti Research Lab, and other organizations such as Greenpeace. Admission is free.
We’re running a bus trip from Guelph to the lecture! The bus will leave from 193 Woolwich Street (Macquarie House) at around 6 to be at Kitchener City Hall with enough time to unload and settle in before the lecture. The bus is free, and you can reserve your spot at stevelambertbus.eventbrite.com or call 519-836-7300 x 103.
