Ollie Graciously Accepts
Conventional Depiction in
Commemorative Public Art Project
A platform designed as a place for children to play and perform at Palmer Square Park in Chicago was chosen as a site to honor Ollie's efforts to create spaces for self-expression and play in over-regimented contemporary society. Also commemorated in the installation is Olliie's frequent collaborator, Chuckie (IE, no Y, no knives). Asked by reporters about her relationship with Chuckie, Ollie stated "Think of Abramović and Ulay without the break up."

President Calls on Ollie in Crisis
LOWENFELD IS MISSING!
Ollie’s Case Studies in Investigation, Volume 3
I was bored–sitting in my office, watching the flashing blue light on the pole across the street, considering whether to give my old friend Ranciere a call. I hated that his work had gotten so mixed up with politics. Politics—it’s a dirty business, but then again so is aesthetics. None of us have clean hands….
I was startled out of my deliberations by the harsh jangle of the phone. I lunged for the phone, but as I put the receiver to my ear, the line clicked dead. Darn it, I hate when that happens. I need another Gal Friday—but the last one didn’t work out so well—she left in a huff—saying she didn't mind the typing or getting the coffee, but she just couldn't stand hearing
another word of my analysis of the gendered construction of her position. Ahh, the phone rang again. This time I grabbed it.
It was my pal Shauck, Barry Shauck, president of NAEA. Must be a serious case for him to call me. I was astounded at his news. A life size bust of Lowenfeld had gone missing. Originally there’d been three—one went to Eisner, another sat in my office, but the third was unaccounted for…I’m on the case.

MAPPING: REPRESENTING OR CONSTRUCTING REALITY?
a lecture by Ollie Nacht
Ollie demonstrates that conventions of picturing the round earth which moves through space in which there is no up or down, as oriented in an upright position with North America and Europe always at the top is part of the visual culture construction of the mindset that it was/is natural for U.S. and Europe to dominate the world economy.
