home school, run by manuel arturo abreu and Victoria Anne Reis is a free art school based in Portland, OR. Streaming from various venues, classrooms, and art institutions, the school works across starkly divergent formal conventions and professionalisms to create critical and entertaining lectures and works of performance amongst a broader curriculum of exhibitions and events. In this lecture from abreu’s 2018 class on “non-art”, one of many equally interesting documents from home school, abreu lays the groundwork for a critique of art from a variety of positions, screening Hamishi Farah’s 2014 video Marginal Aesthetics, and abreu’s own video essay, Notes on the Garage Residency (2018). Setting the tone for the class with musician Bali Baby’s transition to Pop Punk from Trap, abreu asks us to take a similarly transformative leap: to reconsider modernism’s definition of art from the margins.
