Iron Chef meets Canal Zone at Printed Matter. Photo Courtesy Brent Burkett (aka @HeartAsArena)
Apparently, our recent panel discussion from last Saturday at Printed Matter has legs. Organized by Greg Allen with Chris Habib, and me... and a lively audience.... we tried to focus on Richard Prince's contested Canal Zone series itself, instead of becoming hopelessly embroiled in another hyper-emotional discussion about copyright. Good idea from Greg, who felt it high time we take a serious look at the actual paintings, which where coldly ignored by the very court that banished them.
I made a recording which can now be freely streamed, downloaded and redistributed via Archive.org:
Printed Matter held a panel over the weekend about Prince v. Cariou, [sic!] the ongoing legal battle about Richard Prince’s “Canal Zone” with Joy Garnett, Greg Allen, and Chris Habib. It’s archived online, and well worth a listen! [Internet Archive]
Our talk also seems to have caught the attention of Richard Prince (not least because Prince is a passionate bibliophile and an exhibitor in the upcoming New York Art Book Fair, as is Printed Matter):

Well that cat's out of the bag.
Joy Garnett posted audio from the Richard Prince Canal Zone discussion she, Chris Habib and I had Saturday night at Printed Matter. It's available for streaming or download at the Internet Archive. OR for remixing, autotuning, and stop-action animating, whatever you want, since artpanelsjustwanttobefree it's public domain.
It clocks in at almost an hour and a half, and who knows what you'll find in there. I was too high on life and drunk on power--I was running the projector, too-- to really remember what was said. Though I do remember something about megayachts, Perry Mason vs Law & Order; and wishing you were Rasta and/or punk. So really, something for everyone.
Many thanks to Chris and Joy, to Keith and Max and the PM Crew, and especially to the awesome and engaged audience. We'll do it again for either the damages hearing or the Supreme Court phase.
What more can I say? Oh yeah: Rasta La Vista baybe!
