Ted will give a talk on Saturday May 10 at the de Young Museum on archives, collecting and the legacy of Bay Area collector/scholar Steven Leiber. The talk is being presented as a part of Lexa Walsh’s “Mapping the Archive Project”. A small sampling of Ted’s archive of ephemera from Bay Area social art projects is included in the project.

In 1944 André Breton criticized chess and chess playing artists saying that “what must be changed is the game itself, not the pieces.” At Kadist SF we’ll devote an evening to considering a range of artist mutations of the rules or structure of the game of chess, rather than the formal components of the board and pieces.
