In the News: Chloë Bass and Glenn Goldberg, “Quiet War”

Studio professors Chloë Bass and Glenn Goldberg recently spoke at Lafayette College about their upcoming collaboration, a book project entitled “Quiet War,” which was inspired by the children’s card game “War.” In the game, two players flip a card over at the same time and whoever has the card with the highest value wins that round.

To pick the materials for Quiet War, Bass and Goldberg individually selected twenty pieces of media from their personal collections without consulting one another and showed them to each other in the style of ‘War” – that is, by revealing them at the same time.

“I wouldn’t say there could be a winner,” Bass said, clarifying a difference between Quiet War and the card game that inspired it. “But it was an interesting way to see how two unknown collections could interact.”

The professors addressed students at Lafayette and will be utilizing their Experimental Print Institute to create the work. Read more about the project at the Lafayette student newspaper!

Join Studio Professor Chloe Bass this Friday, September 14th, at 6:30pm at the The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, where she’ll be presenting as part of the ongoing Artists on Artworks series.

“I’m using this opportunity to debut a new lecture-performance work about observing families through found footage and reconfigurations of everyday materials, the latter of which is a central theme in the museum’s excellent exhibition History Refused To Die.

Appearances (within the text) from Lauren Berlant, bell hooks, the most and least expensive family snapshots found on eBay last Friday afternoon, a father-son dance routine, and a sleeping baby.”
