Arts + Design Mondays @ BAMPFA: Spring 2017 (Lectures Series Videos)

This semester the Arts + Design Initiative presented a Spring 2017 season of lectures as part of our program Arts + Design Mondays @ BAMPFA. Lectures were organized with multiple units on campus including the Art, Technology, and Culture Colloquium, Arts Research Center, and The Future of Cultural Criticism.  Leaders and educators in arts and design from around the world spoke on Monday evenings at BAMPFA’s Theater. Arts + Design Mondays @ BAMPFA will resume with a full schedule of Monday night lectures in Fall 2017. 

 

Arts + Design Mondays @ BAMPFA is a collection of thought-provoking lectures organized by faculty from across the Berkeley campus. The program features topics ranging from new immersive art technologies, cultural critique, the role of the arts in social justice, and other timely offerings.
