Double Taking and Troublemaking: Socially Engaged Practice as Intentionally Disruptive Art
October 6, 2017 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Lecture & Performance
Friday, October 6, 2017 / 2:00–4:00pm
MIT Building 9-255
Free and open to the public; registration encouraged.
Socially engaged art-making tactics can encourage the disruption of long-held cultural, social and historical assumptions. B. Stephen Carpenter II, Ida Ely Rubin Artist in Residence at the MIT Center for Art, Science & Technology (CAST) and the Department of Urban Studies & Planning (DUSP), seeks to challenge conventional social, cultural and visual assumptions of teaching, discussing and owning segregationist practices. This public lecture and performance will encourage individual and collective interpretations as we situate visual arts practices of troubling and disrupting images within a discourse of resistance and desegregation.
Events are open to all community members. We welcome people of every identity, ability/disability, and background, and will strive to meet all needs for full participation.
