Please join us earlier in the evening on October 10 in the Discursive and Curatorial Productions (DCP) Initiative space for the joint opening reception of VOID/GRAVITY: DOMINIC PAUL MILLER, WORKS ON PAPER and the release of the second issue of Unweave, a collection of essays organized and produced by the DCP Initiative and generously funded by the UC San Diego Department of Visual Arts.

Unweave revolves around seminars, exhibitions and research projects produced by the initiative, functioning more like a series of research notebooks than a typical journal or magazine. The DCP Initiative is pleased to present the culmination of its year-long programming series, The Conflict of the Faculties. This issue reflects investigations into the tensions of institutional and material forces surrounding art and education, featuring texts by Grant Kester, Luis Camnitzer, Nora Sternfeld and Suhail Malik on the politics of education, its curatorial dimensions, and the development of the Ph.D. for artists. This issue also includes excerpts from Judith Rodenbeck’s unpublished conversations with Allan Kaprow, a reprint of Immanuelle Kant’s essay The Conflict of the Faculties and a conversation between Tim Ridlen and Blake Stimson about the potential of institutions in contemporary art.
