Have the art gods gone mad? Many artistic panties are in a serious twist over one big scheduling snafu going down Thurs., APRIL 5. Seminal American sculptor/performance artist JANINE ANTONI (right: "Coddle," 1999), most famous for her lard-and-chocolate sculptures that she slowly gnaws away at with her teeth, discusses Buddhism with Sharon Salzberg in "Mindfulness, Love and the Creative Process" at Emory's Michael C. Carlos Museum. On that same fateful, artist-talk-laden evening, PAUL PFEIFFER, whose technologically cutting-edge video work, which centers on how the media shapes our consciousness and earned him the inaugural Bucksbaum Award from the Whitney Museum of American Art, speaks at the University of Georgia. So go ahead and make that Sophie's choice. At least you can't really lose. Janine Antoni: Free ($10 suggested donation). 7 p.m. Michael C. Carlos Museum Reception Hall, third floor, 571 S. Kilgo Circle. 404-712-4390. www.visualarts.emory.edu. Paul Pfeiffer: Free. 5:30 p.m. Student Learning Center, Room 171, 48 Baxter St., Athens. 706-542-0116. www.art.uga.edu.
