This symposium will engage all those who regularly look at, think about, and make art—especially art students and faculty, artists, art critics, and curators. Keynote: Allan deSouza whose forthcoming book is titled How Art Can Be Thought: A Handbook for Change.
In this interactive workshop, Z Nicolazzo will discuss the always already embodied nature of critical pedagogy for people with marginalized identities. She will engage participants in self-reflection and group-based activities to explore what it means to “show up” with marginalized identities in classroom spaces, how we are met with student resistance, and the possibilities for meeting such resistance to navigate the academy.
