I've organized two colloquia about if, when, and how education becomes art practice. New nontraditional learning scenarios are emerging in many academic disciplines, especially in the arts, but somehow the proposition that education could be a medium for art-making provokes strong reactions. This colloquium invites several artists who are protagonists in educational experiments to explore and question the implications of education as an art practice.
Both events are free and open to the public.
If you're not a part of CAA, you can still attend these discussions.
