METHOD NIGHT is a monthly event presented by Hideki Nakazawa, a Japanese artist, who calls himself a METHODICIST. METHODICISM was launched in Japan in 2000, when Nakazawa et al. drafted "Method Painting, Method Poem, Method Music (Methodicist Manifesto)."

After a brief slide show of his works, Hideki Nakazawa will debate through an interpreter with Barbara Pollack, a critic writing regularly for "Artnews," "Art in America," "the Village Voice," as well as creating her own art projects. Last month, she visited Nakazawa's studio, where the critic and the artist had a closed-door "talk battle." This will be the second "talk battle" between Pollack and Nakazawa, but the first which will be open to the public. Those who attend will be paid $3 each, as their participation itself may be a part of Nakazawa's work.

Barbara Pollack is a contemporary artist who frequently writes on art for such publications as Artnews, Art In America, Time Out NY, the Village Voice, and the New York Times. She recently had a solo installation at Trans>area and was included in Homeland, curated by the Whitney ISP fellows, both this spring. Pollack is represented by Esso Gallery and has previously had solo shows at Esso, the Holly Solomon Gallery and Threadwaxing Space. Her work is in the collections of the Brooklyn Museum of Art, the Guggenheim Museum, the New York Public Library and the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, among others. Her upcoming project, The Max Files, will open at the Center for Visual Arts and Culture at the University of Connecticut in August 2003. Additionally, Pollack is a professor of art history and photography at the School of Visual Arts.

Hideki Nakazawa is a contemporary artist who occasionally writes on art for such publications as Bijutsu Techo, Brutus, and Eureka. He has published two books, Lives of Western Painters, and Text on Modern Art History. He won the Premium Prize in VOCA this spring, and is participating in the program of ISCP, NYC, until the end of this month with the support from the Japanese Government. Nakazawa has previously had solo shows at Gallery Cellar, Roentgenwerke, Sano Gallery, Sai Gallery, Gallery NW House, and Helen Pitt Gallery. His work is in the collections of the Kitakyushu Municipal Museum of Art, the Tokyo Metropolitan Museum of Photography, the Mercian Karuizawa Museum of Art, among others.
