Art Talk at MOCA

Seth Rosenberg was a local artist who died of a heart attack in September 2009 at age 57. If you haven't seen his stuff, Google him or something. Golly, it's something else. In a 2009 personal statement, he described his paintings as "densely packed, abstract pastiches." (Let's disregard the fact that we've always assumed "pastiche" was a culinary term.) It might mean that most of his work features inventive layering, elements of disjointed text — sort of sci-fi-inspired imagery and a truly psychedelic palette. This afternoon, artist and art critic Dan Tranberg and author Ferdinand Protzman will engage in what the Cleveland Museum of Contemporary Art is calling a "thoughtful exchange" about the paintings, prints, career, and life of Rosenberg, part of MOCA's "Contemporary Conversations" series. The casual event takes place from 1 to 2:30 p.m.; MOCA is at 8501 Carnegie Ave. Call 216-421-8671 or visit mocacleveland.org for more info. — Allard
