Over the past year, ArtCenter/South Florida has convened a series of meetings with curators, artists, gallerists, educators, and cultural leaders from within and outside of Miami to think together about the role of education in forming and reshaping the institutions that we occupy.
The questions asked and the lessons learned are the basis for RECESS: Art, Pedagogy, and the Social Sphere. This two-day forum relies on the idea of recess – a break from official proceedings – to assess institutional intentions and share strategies for creating horizons of possibility with art and education.
DAY 1: Toward Study: Steering and Reimagining Institutions
Open to panelists, ArtCenter Residents & Fellows, and by invitation only
This roundtable conversation will hone in on the role of education in re-imagining art institutions to better respond, reflect and speak to their contemporary realities. The participants will not only discuss the pressures institutions are directly responding to in relation to art and education (student loan debt, lack of critical engagement, access to knowledge, diversity, etc.) but will also elaborate on curricula, collaborative networks, exchanges and other strategies they enlist in the process.
