Domingo Castillo + Liz Shannon @ Locust Projects, Aug 16

15 August 2016

Domingo Castillo and curator Liz Shannon are presenting ‘Dazed and Confused: Thoughts on Boredom’ at Miami’s Locust Projects on August 16.

The evening will focus on the pair’s understanding of laziness and its relationship to making good art. The press release references ideas from figures such as Paul Lafargue, Robert Louis Stevenson, Virginia Woolf and Bertrand Russell, whom Shannon and Castillo will be discussing.

‘Thoughts on Boredom’ is part of Locust Roundtables, a series of open discussion topics in contemporary art brought forth and moderated by members of the Miami community and beyond.

Castillo is one of the founders of collective Versace Versace Versace.
