Breaking Glass: Seminar at the Graham Foundation
This seminar is an experimental five-week project led by artist Irena Knezevic, architect Jimenes Lai, artist Daniel Bauer, and different invited guests from a range of disciplines. Held at the Graham Foundation for Advanced Studies in the Fine Arts, the focus of the program is to initiate collaborative discourse and production between students and practitioners of art, architecture and design. In a rigorous disciplinary exchange and critique, the program themes will vibrate around formulating new values within the contemporary art-architecture-design complex. Weekly experiments, studies and projects will demonstrate how and where all three disciplines exist in a single mode and how those modes actually look like.
Over the course of the seminar, the Graham Foundation library and second floor galleries will serve as a site for research, meeting, and production as well as peripheral programming including film screenings, derives, and studio visits to augment the interests of seminar participants.
While twelve students will be selected to produce and present work, the seminar will be open to the public and welcomes anyone interested in contributing in the seminar sessions. Seminar discussions, presentations by students and visitors, and project critiques will be documented through weekly printed bulletins that will be produced by the students and compiled into a small publication.
Seminar sessions will occur every Thursday starting on July 19 and culminate with a final project presentation on August 16.
