Artists and Transversal Pedagogy
December 14, 2021 @ 4:30 pm - 6:00 pm
Art is a space of freedom; a space to traverse the many limitations society imposes on people. From Petrit Halilaj, who encountered art making as a teenager in a refugee camp in Albania and transforms this experience through his practice to shed light on deliberately obscured histories, to Ahmed Ogut who amplifies the knowledge and skills of displaced people and forced migrants in his artistic practice through creating a solidarity-based knowledge exchange program known as the Silent University, to Adriana Bustos whose Vision Machine series makes visible the feminist and non-Eurocentric knowledge systems that have not yet been written into the dominant narratives of world history, to Virginia Zanetti whose practice tries to identify and break up boundaries between artworks and their audiences through engaging with relational dynamics and shared codes of a community, artists from around the world are collaborating with art institutions to expand the limits of formal education systems. Aaron Cezar (Director, Delfina Foundation), Ahmed Ogut (Artist), Matteo Lucchetti (Curator, Visible Project), Anne Barlow (Director, Tate St. Ives), Kathryn Weir (Director, MADRE), and Virginia Zanetti (Artist) will discuss how these collaborations have created expanded schools for life-long learning.
