Critical, Clinical, Curatorial
The symposium invites an in-depth exploration of the various educational programs and exhibitions that make up the intertwined histories of art and therapy, modern art and self-taught artists, art and madness. By focusing on these interrelated histories, the symposium does not seek to question whether therapeutic work constitutes “art,” but rather to engage questions concerning the works’ sites of production, distribution, and reception, and the ways these histories have intersected in meaningful ways for a renewed understanding of art’s histories.
The Florida Museum of Natural History, Harn Museum of Art, University of Florida Performing Arts and UF Southwest Recreation Center will host the first UF Cultural Plaza Festival from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., featuring free exhibit tours, dance performances and other indoor and outside activities for visitors of all ages.
Jennifer Karady and Rania Matar in Conversation
Aftermath photographers, Karady and Matar will discuss their motivations as photographers, their collaborations with their subjects, and what they might share with each other and the people they photograph as a response to war. Karady collaborates with U.S. veterans; Matar addresses the personal and environmental in Lebanon. Book signing to follow.
Children ages 2 - 5 (pre-kindergarten) and their caregivers explore the museum with age-appropriate tours and other activities to investigate color, shape, pattern and other “tot” interests. Click here to register.
