Master of Public Art Studies Critical Conversations

“Critical Conversations” features talks by visiting artists, curators, theorists, art historians, writers, organizers, activists, architects and other types of cultural producers, who engage in critical, open, rigorous conversations with the graduate students, and other attending members of the public. Notions/realities of public space, and the cultural politics of the public sphere, are explored from various disciplinary and ideological perspectives, so that the classroom becomes a potential locus of authentic public domain experience: a place wherein multiple discursive positions are brought into contact, even into moments of productive friction, and new knowledge is generated.
