The weekly CAA Conversations Podcast continues the vibrant discussions initiated at our Annual Conference. Listen in each week as educators explore arts and pedagogy, tackling everything from the day-to-day grind to the big, universal questions of the field.
This week, Pete Schulte and Rubens Ghenov discuss the syncretism that exists between representation and non-objectivity in their current work, the fallacy of binary critiques of art in relation to form and content, as well as the manner in which these interests influence their approach to pedagogy.
Pete Schulte is an artist who lives and works in Birmingham, Alabama. He is Associate Professor of Art and chair of the drawing area at The University of Alabama in Tuscaloosa. Schulte is also co-founder, with artist Amy Pleasant, of The Fuel and Lumber Company curatorial initiative. He recently completed a summer long residency at The Chinati Foundation in Marfa, Texas and will present a solo exhibition of his work at McKenzie Fine Art in New York City later this fall.
Rubens Ghenov was born in São Paulo, Brazil and immigrated to the US in 1989. He lives and works in Knoxville, Tennessee where he is an Assistant Professor of Painting and Drawing at the University of Tennessee. He recently concluded an Affiliated Fellowship at the American Academy in Rome whose works will be in two upcoming group shows, Symbols and Archetypes at Vanderbilt Fine Arts Gallery in Nashville, Tennessee and a yet to be titled show at Mindy Solomon in Miami.
