Gareth Long: Stupid Learning Tool 2
Gareth Long: Square Peg Round Hole, at Susan Hobbs, March 23 to April 29, reception 5-8 pm March 23.
Sculptural "stupid-learning tools" help Long ask the timely questions "How is stupidity taught?" "How can it be learned?" and "If stupidity offers alternative models of thought, why leave it to the idiots?" The show also includes Long's animated video about sticking the proverbial peg into the hole and a selection of projects on stupidity by Long's former students.
