Brussels-based artist Kobe Matthys, through his initiative Agency, investigates the modern concept of intellectual property, and its reliance on the assumption of a division between the ontological categories of ‘nature’ and ‘culture’. Knowing that such a split is difficult to make when applied to many art practices, Matthys Agency is creating a growing list of ‘things’ that resists the split between these two classifications. These ‘things’ are mainly derived from controversies and jurisprudence around intellectual property. For the exhibition, Agency gathers a selection of ‘things’ from its list, based on the speculative question “How can temporalities become included within art practices?” This question addresses ways that the requirement of “fixation” in copyright law may be inconsistent with the ecosystem of art, since the scope of interpretations can encompass an infinite set of potential variations. The exhibition delves into approximately thirty controversies around the temporariness of singular cases within cinema, fine arts, gaming, gardening, make-up, music, performance, reality television, speech, sports and theater, among others. Some of the controversies will be explored further during a series of five events or “assemblies” at REDCAT.

The Friends of Crowell Public Library’s Meet the Authors series continues with Mona Simpson whose powerful new novel, Casebook, is a witty, perceptive story of family life, part coming-of-age story and part detective yarn. The acclaimed and award-winning author of Anywhere But Here and My Hollywood, Simpson’s latest is about a young boy’s quest to uncover the mysteries of his unraveling family. What he discovers turns out to be what he least wants to know: the inner workings of his parents’ lives. And even then he can’t stop searching. The boy’s amateur detective work starts innocently but quickly takes him to the far reaches of adult privacy as he acquires knowledge that will affect the family’s well-being, prosperity, and sanity. Casebook reveals an American family both coming apart at the seams and, simultaneously, reconstituting itself to sustain its members through their ultimate trial. Mona Simpson gives the reader a boy hero for our times whose story remains long after the novel is over.
Mona Simpson moved to Los Angeles as a young teenager and attended UC Berkeley, where she studied poetry. She worked as a journalist before moving to New York to attend Columbia's MFA program. During graduate school, she published her first short stories in Ploughshares, The Iowa Review and Mademoiselle. She stayed in New York and worked as an editor at The Paris Review for five years while finishing her first novel. Anywhere But Here. After that, she wrote The Lost Father, A Regular Guy and Off Keck Road.
Her work has been awarded the Whiting Prize, a Guggenheim, an NEA grant, a Hodder Fellowship from Princeton University, the Lila Wallace Readers Digest Prize, Chicago Tribune Heartland Prize, Pen Faulkner finalist, and most recently the Literature Award from the American Academy of Arts and Letters.
This event is free and open to all. Light refreshments will be served. With wonderful Friends like these, the authors keep coming at Crowell Public Library!
