Temporary Services

The University of Maine Intermedia MFA program is pleased to announce the next lecturer of their 2012 spring Visiting Artist series, Temporary Services. The collaborative artist group will present a public lecture titled “Temporary Services: Talking Shop” on Tuesday, March 27th at 7:00pm in Lord Hall on the University of Maine campus in Orono.

Two of the three founding members of Temporary Services will present on several of their projects including; The Library Project, Prisoners’ Inventions, newspaper/project ART WORK, and their publishing practice in general, including the creation of Half-Letter Press.  For more information on their works visit their website at www.temporaryservices.org

Temporary Services started in 1998 as an experimental exhibition space in a working class neighborhood of Chicago and is now based in Chicago, Copenhagen, and Philadelphia. Temporary Services is a collaborative group that produces exhibitions, events, projects, and publications.  They believe that the distinction between art practice and other creative human endeavors is irrelevant.  Temporary Services seeks to create and participate in ethical relationships that are not competitive and are mutually beneficial.  For more information on their works please visit their website www.temporaryservices.org

This event is sponsored by the Intermedia MFA Program, the Department of New Media and the University of Maine Cultural Affairs / Distinguished Lecture Series.
