Upcoming Lectures

Trevor Paglen

January 26, 2015

3:00pm, Atwood Little Theatre: “Gathering Dust” - a panel discussion with Paglen, Gareth John (Geography Dept.), Annette Lee (Astronomy and Physics Depts.) and Bartholomew Ryan (Curator, Walker Art Center)

Our contemporary world captures information and data at an alarming rate. People making an effort to preserve the events of lives lived is not a new idea. What is new is how and for what reasons information and data are captured and preserved. Invariably, when a large net is cast, details get lost or are knowingly omitted. What gets left out? Who decides how history unfolds? What remains at the end of the day? Join us for an in depth discussion about the nature of time, pictures and history at the intersection of art, geography and science.

7:00pm Atwood Little Theatre: Artist Talk
