OPEN TO THE PUBLIC | Music Mondays presents an artist talk with mrudangam artist, composer, and scholar Rajna Swaminathan.
OPEN TO THE PUBLIC | This talk starts from the unorthodox idea that a study of technical interactions is not just about decoding platforms but also about studying service work—call center operators, wait staff, even sex workers. By investigating the dissociative and opaque performances in Julia Leigh’s film Sleeping Beauty (2011), Tung-Hui Hu shows that personhood today has become cybernetic: we increasingly communicate with others through scripted—even programmed—interactions while revealing little of ourselves. These dehumanizing changes are not all depressing, however, but represent an opportunity to reconceive what liveness, privacy, and humanness are today.
Come to discuss course offerings, expectations around 4000-level classes and advanced work.
OPEN TO THE PUBLIC | This week's VALS guest is Calida Garcia Rawles. Merging sharp hyper-realism with poetic abstraction, Los Angeles-based Calida Garcia Rawles paints African-American women and men submerged in glistening water; bodies are swarmed by a flurry of bubbles, ripples, and refracted light. Please note that this event, originally scheduled for April 20, will be occurring on April 27.
