MOCA/FM:
A Live Symposium on Conceptual Art, (July 27, 1971)

Listen
Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 55 min
Event Type: Lecture / Panel Discussion Program Origin: KPFA

Tom Marioni, Director of the Museum of Conceptual Art, leads a live panel discussion on the subject of conceptual art. Participants includes: Jim Melchert, David Hollsenbeck, Bill Geiss, and Transparent Teachers Inc. This barely moderated event includes discussions on the definition of conceptual art as art without a frame; conceptual art as a vacation; how to fry bacon; experimenting with dogs; and other amusing interludes that eradicate the barrier between thought and action. Eventually the audience is asked to join the panelists at the front of the room, which initiates a conversation about the role of tension in such situations. A tension that is soon dissipated by the arrival of additional six-packs of beer, providing enough for both the panelists and audience members.
