Critical conversations about culture often only happen online, thanks to Twitter and Facebook. Black Cube Gallery, the nomadic curatorial project, is aiming to fix that with a new series, "Talk With Your Mouth Full," a monthly conversation where artists from around Colorado meet to discuss an arts-related topic.
Some conversations will center around a particular artist's work; others will look at issues in the art world. The goal is to strengthen the local creative community and bridge the gap between emerging and established artists.
The series will take place the first Sunday of every month, and the inaugural event will be led by Denver-based artist Amber Cobb, whose visceral sculptures explore sexuality — everything from the sensuality and physical movement in "The Dreamer's Dilemma" to childhood masturbation in her glorious yet grotesque installation "All the Things I Might Have Humped." If the thought of discussing Cobb's provocative work isn't enough to get you out of the house on the first Sunday of 2019, perhaps free brunch and drinks will.
