Department of Transformation: Opening Night Talk with Prem Krishnamurthy
Presented in partnership with Fusebox Festival + FÖDA + Northern-Southern
Department of Transformation Day 1: Three Scales
What is the transformative potential of art? How can art and design create change at the individual, collective, and structural scales? On Day 1 of Department of Transformation, we’ll explore this and other questions in a participatory talk. Sharing recent projects across design, writing, and curating, Prem will outline a framework for art and transformation at three distinct scales. The talk incorporates multiple modes—such as journaling, movement, and conversation (+ karaoke!)—to engage in different senses and kinds of connection.
This remarkable series kicks off Wed night at the Carver Museum and doubles as a keynote presentation for the launch of the festival. Free Admission. Limited seating, RSVP encouraged.
The lecture presentation is followed by an opening night reception and toast.
