Add event to my calendar

Spend a lunch hour learning about the latest in art and design during these Friday lectures. Each lecture features a variety of artists and designers from around the world, including CIA faculty and visiting artists.

What is "SEA," or socially engaged art? What makes it art and what drives the social aspect of it? Why has it emerged as such a strong current in contemporary art "practice"? What are some of the controversies in attempting to define it? Professors Gary D. Sampson and José Carlos Teixeira will present several examples of SEA in a LOF dialogue in anticipation of CIA's conference on the topic next November.

Sampson is professor of art and design history and theory at CIA, and Teixeira holds a joint position between CIA and CWRU as the Champney Family Fellow in art and art history.

This event is free and open to the public. Pizza and beverages will be provided. Click here to read more about the Lunch on Fridays series.

Cleveland Institute of Art is supported in part by the residents of Cuyahoga County through a public grant from Cuyahoga Arts & Culture.
