Morgan Bassichis's performance at SAIC was warm and engaging and received a standing ovation. Our first colloquium, the day after, with him as our guest/host/subject, was lively, intense, and memorable. He provided a jolt of energy at the end of an already intensely emotional and charged week. It's safe to say everyone learned something. Politics, authorship, and permission were big topics/debates. I was also fortunate to have a studio visit and group crit with Morgan where we discussed the value of subtlety and winning over a crowd, among other things.
Also, Molly Zuckerman Hartung was our first visiting artist. I would have loved the opportunity to visit with her too
