In a climate where polarization and intolerance are increasingly decried, visiting artist B. Stephen Carpenter II, the Ida Ely Rubin Artist in Residence at the MIT Center for Art, Science & Technology (CAST), believes that art can enable people to have civil conversations about difficult topics such as race, segregation or poverty in the U.S.
Join Carpenter during his final visit to MIT during which he will examine how the practice of participating in the creation of art can inform how we teach, define and appreciate art.
