Our The Andy Warhol Legacy Project and The Importance of Being Photographed exhibitions are now over. If you didn’t get to the gallery for it, well you’ve missed a once in a lifetime opportunity to see all that great work installed at USFCAM.

So listen, instead of feeling sorry for yourself, get out your calendar and make a plan so you don’t miss another groundbreaking show, Open Score! We have events planned that you won’t want to miss, including a video arcade, nights of music, and informative tours that will make you an expert on Robert Rauschenberg and performance art!

Scroll down for the dates and times for all the planned events. And here’s a bit more information about the upcoming USFCAM Open Score exhibition:

Open Score
January 18 – March 9, 2013
USF Contemporary Art Museum

Open Score pays homage to artist Robert Rauschenberg and the first in the series of groundbreaking performance art presentations he titled 9 Evenings: Theatre and Engineering, held in 1966 at the Armory in New York City. With its emphasis on the technological aspects of new media, Open Score examines the possibilities these technologies offer as tools for the poetic transformation of reality and the approach to forms of expression in art and daily life. Participating artists include Ingrid Bachmann and Bill Vorn (Canada); Patricia Clark and Barry Moon (USA); Luis Gómez, Antonio Gómez Margolles, and Levi Orta (Cuba); Camilo Martínez and Gabriel Zea (Colombia); and Mariano Sardón (Argentina). Initially curated by Luis Gómez and Dannys Montes de Oca for the 11th Biennial in Havana, Cuba, the Open Score project in the USA is curated by Noel Smith, IRA Curator of Latin American and Caribbean Art, in collaboration with Gómez and Montes de Oca, and is organized by USFCAM.
