Overview Symposia Library-Infoshop Themes Projects

/// SYMPOSIA ///

The three symposia sessions each consist of a series of public presentations and discussions. The topics of the sessions reflect primary themes of the exhibition and each session will feature a range of perspectives, including at least one activist, one artist, and one scholar who all work on the same issue. The goal of the symposia is to draw together disparate methodologies from multiple disciplines and to explore the specific role of each perspective in making injustice visible, creating just spaces, and moving from injustice to justice. We consider the symposia to be an essential component of the larger project – one that is particularly well suited to engage important questions about process. All events are at LACE unless otherwise noted.
