Wesley Brown – Fiction and the Art of Not Knowing

The artist, Robert Rauschenberg, once said: “I usually work in a direction until I know how to do it; then I stop.”

For Rauschenberg, the artist is engaged in an ongoing struggle against what he or she knows how to do. Any creative person, whether they consider themselves an artist or not, is always attempting to discover something unknown. And once making a discovery, they try to create new problems to complicate or challenge what they’ve found out.

In Wesley Brown’s talk on the art of know knowing, he will discuss how the unknown is revealed in the story, “Awaiting Orders” by Tobias Wolff.

This event is free to attend and open to the public.
