Fall 2018 – Spring 2019: Fact & Fiction

What do we make now of this classic opposition? For centuries, artists and critics have placed pressure on both of these terms, often asking us to question how to separate truth from lies, the real from the artificial, and fact from fiction. Addressing a range of political contexts and utilizing an array of creative forms, speakers in this series offer new approaches to these age-old questions.

The Art, Technology, and Culture Colloquium is presented in conjunction with Arts + Design Mondays at BAMPFA.

Monday Evenings, 6:30-8:00pm
