Propositions is a public forum that explores ideas in development. Each two-day seminar explores a topic of current investigation in an invited speaker’s own artistic or intellectual practice. Over the course of a seminar session, these developing ideas are presented to the public, responded to, “researched,” and discussed to propel the ideas forward in unique ways.
Friday, 7 p.m.| Initial proposition and lecture
Saturday, 2 p.m. | Guest speaker, followed by a discussion
