Propositions is a public forum that explores ideas in development. Each two-day seminar introduces 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 responded to, researched, and discussed to propel them forward in unique ways.

The structure of Propositions is typically as follows:
Thursday, 7 p.m. – Initial proposition and lecture
Saturday, 3 p.m. – Guest speaker responds, followed by discussion with audience

The Proposition this month is by Anthony Huberman.
