By Brian Massumi

Occasions are constantly passing; to adventure an occasion is to adventure the passing. yet how can we understand an event that encompasses the just-was and the is-about-to-be up to what's truly current? In Semblance and occasion, Brian Massumi, drawing at the paintings of William James, Alfred North Whitehead, Gilles Deleuze, and others, develops the idea that of “semblance” in an effort to procedure this query.

It is, he argues, a query of abstraction, now not because the contrary of the concrete yet as a size of it: “lived abstraction.” A semblance is a lived abstraction. Massumi makes use of the class of the illusion to enquire practices of paintings which are relational and event-oriented—variously often called interactive paintings, ephemeral artwork, functionality paintings, paintings intervention—which he refers to jointly because the “occurrent arts.” every one paintings perform invents its personal types of relational occasions of lived abstraction, to provide a signature species of semblance. The artwork’s relational engagement, Massumi keeps, offers it a political valence simply as useful and rapid because the aesthetic measurement.
