Gin & Parker's space for listening

"It's an artist talk, but it's also an artist-listen," says artist Parker Houghtaling, grasping at words to describe his latest project with frequent collaborator Geneviève Brideau. Their collaborative talk ARTFAT—Taking our fat bodies back from the clutches of semiotics aims to achieve a sort of subversion: A space for listening instead of talking, for removing layers of semiotic meaning instead of adding them, for touching art instead of simply looking at it.
