"Vanilla Utopia" Performance, Nov 19, 2015

Beyond the Core, FATE’s 16th Biennial Conference takes place in Kansas City. I’ll be chairing a panel on Friday, Apr 7, 2017 at 9am entitled, “Social Practice in Foundations.” Here’s the abstract:

“Social practice focuses on social engagement and collaboration with individuals, communities, and institutions as a form of participatory art. With the constant evolution of art and design foundations, where and how does this contemporary art form fit in? This panel seeks submissions that address strategies for introducing social practice as part of foundations programs. Topics of investigation could include, but are not limited to, project/assignment outlines and analysis, critique strategies, art historical analysis of pedagogical approaches, case studies examining existing curricular structures and how social practice fits into these, etc.”
