Chess Variants hosted by Ted Purves- Tonight at Kadist SF

October 24, 2012

In 1944 AndrĂ© 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.

Scenes from the Big Feed





Driving to the Big Feed

Fieldfaring is heading east. Over the last three days we have been driving from California to Colorado, where we will be attending M12’s annual Big Feed. We will be presenting our projects during the event, as well as touring M12’s various projects on the Colorado plains.

The BIG FEED is an annual event and action held by M12. It is a celebration of the regional landscape, experimental art and architecture, food, music, culture and community. It is a forum to connect community members and artists in a casual atmosphere, as well as an opportunity for the larger public to learn more about the groundbreaking work presented by the attending community members, artists, musicians, critics, and curators. Landing somewhere between a family reunion, potluck dinner, symposium, and festival, The BIG FEED is held the second weekend in every October. The event is open to the public and the cost of entry is one food item to share.
You can get more information about M12 and the Big Feed here.

Clover through the straw

Peter Huttinger, the director of the CGC’s neighborhood garden program (and a crucial part of the collaboration that made the project happen) sent this picture from the site the other day.
