Visual Studies New Lecture Series Producing Space

Author: AlleyDee

Visual Studies is pleased to present a new lecture series titled Producing Space. The title acknowledges Henri Lefebvre’s widely influential book The Production of Space (first published in 1974), which continues to serve as a reference for understanding the multi-faceted construction of today’s urban environment; one simultaneously formed and unformed through geography, discourse, and representations. Artists, scholars, and thinkers who are actively producing new spaces of social interaction and critical consciousness will be invited to share their creative practice and interdisciplinary collaborations with the Tyler community.

The first speaker in the series will be Bayeté Ross Smith on Tuesday, Oct. 22nd at 6PM in room B004. The second speaker in the series will be Marisa Jahn on Thursday Nov. 21st at 6PM in room B004. Additional speakers will be announced at a later date.  We look forward to having you join us!
