"The Smoking Image": Laure Prouvost's Talk at The Cooper Union

The Intra-Disciplinary Seminar (IDS) Public Lecture Series presents a lecture by Laure Prouvost entitled The Smoking Image at the Cooper Union, on Monday, February 12, 2018, at 7:00pm.

The artist Laure Prouvost produces absorbing moving images and sound installations in which she conflates reality and fiction, and art and everyday life. The Smoking Image is a lecture intending to give a good description of what might happen when Laure Prouvost is coming to share a few things, upon her own words: “as it HEAt, HITs Her that grand dad is lost in the tunnel of history while grand m's dreams are coming to reality, reliques have appeared as some magic electrinics are activating these smoking words”.

The IDS Public Lecture Series, designed as an introduction to some of the most pressing questions driving contemporary thought and practice, consists of lectures by artists, theorists, activists, designers, writers, curators, involved in the arts from positions that embody an interdisciplinary approach or that imply new uses for disciplinary traditions. The 2018 lecture series is organized by Leslie Hewitt and Omar Berrada.
