This program is part of the Research, Engagement, and Politics in Contemporary Art series which explores issues that have become central to contemporary art and places emphasis on the productive intersections of art as research, art as engagement, and art as politics. Through video screenings and artist talks, this series creates a space for exchange and dialogue among academic communities, art audiences, and the general public.

The rise of technology in the 21st century has generated new impressions of what it means to be “human.” Are we now in a post-human time? How are humans and intelligent technology becoming increasingly intertwined? How is being “human” different today than 50, or even 25 years ago? Dr. Kevin LaGrandeur from the New York Institute of Technology will use Stranger as a backdrop against which to pursue these and other questions of humanity.

Exhibition Program

The Spring 2016 Nesnadny + Schwartz Visiting Curator is Cornelia Lauf, curator of MOCA’s upcoming Fall 2016 exhibition, Wall to Wall: Carpets by Artists. For her talk, Lauf will detail her curatorial approach to organizing this exhibition. Wall to Wall features work from a wide cross-section of contemporary artists, and their weaving partners, who engage this medium—once considered a “minor art”—as a compelling focus for artistic inquiry. The interchange between artist, producer, and artisan is of particular interest for Lauf.

Lynette Yiadom-Boakye’s creative practice moves between visual art and literature. As both a writer and a painter, she creates mysterious and captivating fictional characters that emerge and develop on both the page and the canvas. In this program, the Cleveland Association of Black Storytellers will recite and perform some of Yiadom-Boakye’s short stories in the gallery alongside her work, bringing to life the imaginary figures she paints.
