(free and open to the public)

Allan deSouza in conversation with James Voorhies, CCA Chair of the Graduate Program in Curatorial Practice, about his new book How Art Can Be Thought: A Handbook for Change (Duke University Press).

How Art Can Be Thought examines the popular terminology through which art is discussed, valued, and taught, showing how pedagogical language and practices within art schools can adapt to a politicized and rapidly changing world, as well as to the demands of contemporary art within a global industry.

Call + Response is an open invitation to Bay Area cultural producers in fields of design, architecture, humanities, civic affairs, urban planning, and more who want to connect with Curatorial Research Bureau to insert their ideas into the public realm for dialogue. The format speaks to a long history of democratic participation, projecting thoughts and ideas in public gatherings where speaking and listening—call and response—are equally valued as essential parts of public discourse.
