Interdisciplinary Workshop on Ethical Considerations in Project Art and Collaborative Anthropologies: November 11
Please join artist Ben Kinmont and former Draper Program Art Worlds Faculty Fellow Laurel George at NYU’s Fales Library on November 11, 2011 for an Interdisciplinary Workshop on Ethical Considerations in Project Art and Collaborative Anthropologies
In conjunction with his current Fales Library show "Prospectus: New York," Ben Kinmont, along with cultural anthropologist Laurel George, will conduct a workshop on ethical considerations in interactional art practices, a mode that Kinmont has been working in for over two decades.
During the workshop, Kinmont and George will work with faculty and students to generate cross-disciplinary conversations on the ethics and aesthetics of project art, ethnographic fieldwork, and other forms of collaborative cultural production. The version of the text written at the workshop will be distributed and discussed at a larger public forum to take place on November 18th as part of Performa 2011.
The workshop is open to NYU students and faculty interested in thinking critically and creatively about the ethical dimensions of making collaborative and/or public art works as well as those engaged in anthropological fieldwork.
When and Where:
The day-long workshop will take place at Fales Library (Bobst 3rd floor) on Friday, November 11 from 10-4 p.m.
There will be brief reading and writing assignments and students will have the opportunity to be involved in the Performa event, but that is not a requirement of workshop participation.
How to get involved:
For more information or to sign up, contact Laurel George at firstname.lastname@example.org.
