Biennial 2018

Focus  |  Roundtables  |  Request for Proposals 


The CCA will host a series of lunchtime roundtables with its curatorial team of faculty in the arts to facilitate a conversation of duration and contemporary art. The CCA Lunchtime Roundtables will invite an interdisciplinary group of faculty and students to informally present their own work and research with the goal of shedding light on specific areas of scholarship on campus and in the world related to ideas of empathy. Our hope is that these discussions will ignite ideas and inspire new partnerships between faculty and students across the disciplines of art, design, performance, science, and engineering that lead to project proposals for CCA’s Biennial platform.

Roundtable Schedule:

Tuesday, November 28, 2017  |  11:30-1pm  |  407 Tjaden Hall (Art, Architecture)

Thursday, November 30, 2017  |  11:30–1pm  |  220 Schwartz Center (PMA, Music, Creative Writing)

Friday, Dec 1, 2017  |  12:00 –1:00pm  |  T49 HEB (FSAD, DEA, Landscape Architecture)

To register to participate in any of the Biennial Roundtable discussions, RSVP to Erin Emerson, CCA Program Coordinator.
