Susan Robb, Oliver Herring are the Neddy lecturers

From Seattle Times arts writer Michael Upchurch: Art enthusiasts have a chance to hear two visionary eccentrics of the art world exchange views this week, when German-born/Brooklyn-based Oliver Herring joins Seattle artist Susan Robb in conversation in this year’s Neddy at Cornish Annual Lecture. Herring’s “photo sculptures,” in which he takes multiple photographs of a model from all angles and then assembles them into a 3-D photo collage of the person, are striking work. So are his photographs and stop-motion videos that stem from close collaborations with models performing unusual tasks (fountaining food-dye out of their mouths, for instance). Robb is best known for her “Long Walk” projects: group hikes lasting four days or longer, in which she orchestrates what she calls “(un)scripted interactions” between participants and their environs. She bills her work as “an ongoing investigation of people, place, and our search for utopia.” Herring and Robb’s talk, moderated by Ken D. Allan, an assistant professor of art history at Seattle University, is free and takes place at 7 p.m. March 6 at The Playhouse at Seattle Center (formerly Intiman Theatre).
