Graduate Symposium 2018 Pedagogy: Engage, Critique, Inspire
Join us for the 2018 Hallie Ford School of Graduate Studies Symposium, Pedagogy: Engage, Critique, Inspire on October 12-13.
This symposium will engage all those who regularly look at, think about, and make art—especially art students and faculty, artists, art critics, and curators. Through a participatory workshop on positionality in the classroom, as well as panels and workshops on critical pedagogy, experiential learning and critique we will investigate the ways art is discussed, valued, and taught, generating new strategies for the training of artists and critics, with a particular emphasis on what it means to decolonize places of learning.
Our keynote speaker is Allan deSouza whose forthcoming book How Art Can Be Thought: A Handbook for Change (Duke UP, 2018) examines popular terminology through which art is discussed, valued, and taught.
Big congratulations to MFA in Visual Studies alumni Angélica Maria Millán Lozano and maximiliano whose conceptual fashion project Cvllejerx is profiled in the Willamette Week.
Don't miss alumni Melanie Stevens and Samantha Wall with Lisa Jarrett and Ashley Stull Meyers for PADA's Art Conversations series Collecting Power: Art, Agency, and Community at Russo Lee Gallery September 20.
