Unruly Engagements Conference

Add event to my calendar

Cleveland Institute of Art announces a national conference for academic, curatorial, and independent scholars as well as practicing artists and designers. Set for November 6, 7, and 8, 2014, Unruly Engagements features Shannon Jackson as keynote speaker.

This interdisciplinary conference will examine various approaches to social practices in both art and design in an effort to understand the concepts, terms, and varieties of engagement of the past two decades or so. Among the primary objectives is to facilitate public discourse on the feasibility of interventionist projects in art and design in urban environments, with special attention to “rust-belt” cities like Cleveland.

For more information on this conference and keynote speaker Shannon Jackson, click here.

Unruly Engagements is a key component of Community Works: Artist as Social Agent, CIA's yearlong commitment to exploring social agency and the visual arts.
