Using the early work and later reflections of Mike Kelley and Jim Shaw, this lecture focuses on the transmission and reception of drug-related experience and psychedelia. Welchman draws connections to other social formations including education, acculturation, coming-of-age, and visionary religious phenomena. John C. Welchman is professor of art history in the Visual Arts department at the University of California, San Diego. His books include Art After Appropriation: Essays on Art in the 1990s. He has edited three titles with Mike Kelley including Mike Kelley: Interviews, Conversations, and Chit Chat, and co-authored numerous publications including On the Beyond: A Conversation between Mike Kelley, Jim Shaw and John C. Welchman.
