The Interdisciplinary Arts Graduate Panel Lecture Series takes place over the next two weeks as a culmination of the Connected Studio Practices course. The lecture themes for this year’s four segments cover pertinent issues in contemporary art that speak to the Columbia community as we’ll as the wider audience for current and contemporary art and culture practice, exhibition, and performance. These engaging lectures take place during the exhibition of the InterArts MFA Thesis Exhibition and Time Arts Events, providing an opportunity for cross-reference discussion and critical inquiry around the work of graduating MFAs.
