Arts + Design Thursdays: Public Art and Belonging
Thursdays at 12:00pm, Free and open to the public
This lecture series explores relationships between art and belonging, with a focus on race. Might more art remind us of the forgotten, excluded, and devalued contributions of marginalized people to our rich history, or is public art merely a way to manage multiculturalism and silence dissent? How would Berkeley look if art and design were used to create spaces of care for relationships of justice and equity? Join a range of artists and thinkers to investigate how publics might be represented by, formulated through, or critiqued in artworks. For more information, visit artsdesign.berkeley.edu.
All talks are free and open to the public and are located in the BAMPFA theater. Lectures start at 12pm. Arts + Design Thursdays is made possible thanks to support from the Big Ideas Courses Program in the College of Letters & Science at UC Berkeley and from generous supporters of Berkeley Arts + Design. In-kind support is provided by BAMPFA.
