Zoom

In conversation with Professors Marjorie Perloff of Standford and Christy Wampole of Princeton. A rich compendium of literary, architectural, and musical figurations, Harrison's Of Bridges gives a panoramic account of diverse meanings of bridges in seemingly unrelated times and places, questioning why they are built and where they lead. It examines bridges of thought and art, bridges as flash points in war, the links forged by religion between transience and eternity, the mega-bridges of our globalized world, the real and…

Alienated Awareness: Mindfulness Paradigms of Modernist Aesthetics | a virtual lecture by Professor Michael Subialka

May 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm PDT
Zoom

Forms of alienation, from dehumanization and distance to grotesque distortion or critical estrangement, have long been viewed as a hallmark of modernist production.…

Photography on Tilt | a virtual lecture by Professor Kalani Michell

May 2021 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm PDT
Zoom

In 1968, Frank Walter returns to his native Antigua after years in Europe, where he devoted time to speculative genealogical family trees, and opens a portrait studio. Having heard tales of his German lineage, he didn’t anticipate being seen in Europe as only Black, rather than mixed, and contemplates how to materialize this complex history. Upon his return, the studio was key for the 1,250+ miniature paintings he made before his death: He painted them on the back of unwanted photographs. The versos of Walter’s paintings,…
