Tonight’s artist talk features internationally recognized media artist Rafael Lozano-Hemmer, whose work is in not one but TWO exhibitions at SFMOMA right now! The talk will be followed by a performance of experimental composer Seth Horvitz’s Eight Studies for Automatic Piano, a work inspired by simple iterative processes, elegant geometry, the idiosyncratic behavior.

Artist Talk: Trevor Paglen | SFMOMA | Thursday, Oct. 11, 7 PM
Alongside Litquake and Creative Time, the San Francisco Museum of Art will be hosting an Artist Talk with artist-geographer Trevor Paglen. Paglen’s multimedia performance lectures connect to his latest book, The Last Pictures, for which he assembled one hundred images. The images are intended to demonstrate and teach to an audience not of our civilization the existence of the people who “built a ring of communications satellites around Earth.” Paglen will be signing copies of the book from 6-7PM in the MuseumStore before the talk.
The Last Pictures lecture series is organized by Creative Time in conjunction with ten museums and non-profit spaces around the globe. Use the hashtag #TheLastPictures to join the conversation on Twitter, Tumblr or Instagram.
So excited for this talk tomorrow night! Get your tix here.

Yes, this is possibly the coolest project ever…
This fall, Creative Time will launch The Last Pictures, an archival disc created by artist Trevor Paglen, into outer space, where it will orbit the earth for billions of years affixed to the exterior of the communications satellite EchoStar XVI.
