Other Events This Week

Sarah Lewis | Seminar and Lecture
Thurs. Sept 27, 4pm/5:30pm

Pembroke Hall, room 305
172 Meeting Street, Providence

In this talk, Sarah Lewis makes a case for art as a lever to social justice and cultural transformation. “The endeavor to affirm the dignity of human life cannot be waged without pictures,” she has written. “To be an engaged global citizen right now requires visual literacy.” Gathering in various threads — art history, technical innovation, race, photography, the story of America, and a deeply personal narrative — Lewis celebrates individual artists, invokes the collective imagination, and takes a new look at what is there as well as what could be. Seminar (4-5pm) is open to undergraduate students only- more info here. The lecture (5:30pm) is free and open to the public.

Shaun Leonardo | Visiting Artist Lecture
In Conversation with Christina Yang

Wed. Oct 3, 5pm

Granoff Center, Martinos Auditorium
154 Angell Street, Providence

Shaun Leonardo’s performance practice is participatory in nature and invested in a process of embodiment, promoting the political potential of attention and discomfort as a means to disrupt meaning and shift perspective. His recent commission for the Guggenheim Museum, Primitive Games, exemplifies this practice. This body of work is the pillar for his conversation with Christina Yang, Director of Public Programs at the Guggenheim Museum. Together, Shaun and Christina will navigate a discussion around the motivations and process of actualizing a performance as dynamic and challenging as Primitive Games and what it means for artists and museums to sustain a social practice. Presented by the Department of Visual Art and the Brown Arts Initiative.

Erin McKeown in Concert
Thurs. Oct 4, 7pm

Granoff Center, Martinos Auditorium
