LECTURE John Miller on Mike Kelley’s Educational Complex Thursday, March 31, 7pm Admission: Free (suggested $5 donation) John Miller, Professor of Professional Practice in the Department of Art History at Barnard College, is an artist and critic whose work has been exhibited internationally. He was Mike Kelley’s friend and colleague from 1978 until Kelley’s death in 2012. In this talk, Miller will examine Kelley’s milestone work from 1995, 'Educational Complex.' Through an archaeology of the contemporary, Miller argues, Kelley examines the mandate for education and the liberal democratic premises underpinning it. http://www.facebook.com/events/1705981522969056/

Celebrating 50 years of radical publishing, MOCAD presents some of those moments of the last half century that demonstrate the vigor of the Fifth Estate’s politics and how its intersection with the best in creative art, illustration, and design, produces a publication that pulses with a desire and vision of changing the world no different than when it began 50 years ago. The exhibition features a vast amount of groovy cover art, provocative editorial cartoons, archival photographs, paintings and memorabilia recalling the iconic events, people, and institutions that informed the newspaper during its earliest days through the present. Fifth Estate describes itself as an “anarchist, anti-capitalist, anti-authoritarian, anti-profit project published cooperatively by a volunteer collective of friends and comrades.”
