UC Art Alumni Symposium XI ... Art: Appropriation, Authenticity, Application
The University of California Art Alumni Group presents the their eleventh symposium, an ongoing annual series of discussions by Bay Area artists of ideas, issues and the practical realities of being an artist in today’s world. The theme for this year’s event is Art: Appropriation – Authenticity – Application.
The panelists include Dena Beard (Assistant Curator, UC Berkeley Art Museum), Donald Farnsworth (Artist, Founder/Publisher Magnolia Editions), Jeff Kelley (Curator/Art Critic), Noah Lang (Publishing/Artist Management, Electric Works), David Roth (Artist, Critic/Publisher, Square Cylinder), Foad Satterfield (Artist/Curator/Professor, Dominican University/Department of Art), and Nina Zurier (Artist). Jan Wurm (Artist/Curator/Educator) will moderate.
Panelists will bring their diverse perspectives to the discussion of how we define and describe work in terms of ideas of appropriation, authenticity and application. Such questions have come to the fore in today’s quickly shifting world of art and technology. As the day progresses, the audience will be invited to join in the discussion.
Symposium XI will take place on the UC Berkeley Campus at 160 Kroeber Hall, from 9 am to 4 pm. It will be split into a morning and an afternoon session, with a midday break for lunch. A reception will follow the afternoon panel in the Worth Ryder Art Gallery, providing participants the opportunity to informally continue the day’s conversation.
This event is free and open to the public. Further information can be found at www.calartalumni.org or on the Cal Art Alumni Facebook page.
