Michelle Smith Collaboratory for Visual Culture

The Collaboratory is kicking off a new series (and, thus, a new acronym to learn!) this fall: the Collaboratory Amuse Bouche (C.A.B.) series. The idea behind this series is a short, twenty-minute introduction to a new technique or platform, or perhaps a tweak to a well-worn platform, that will offer delight and insight. Bring your lunch, or perhaps just a cup of coffee, for delight in a small presentation format!

MEM-UM Lecture: Dr. Holly Brewer, "Creating a Fashion for Slavery in the Stuart Court(s): Law, Theater, and Art"

Holly Brewer Lecture for MEM-UM collage
Time: 
11/05/2018 - 11:30 to 13:00
Location: 
Michelle Smith Collaboratory for Visual Culture

Charles II and his brother James took many steps to legitimize slavery after 1660, both through the courts of law—where we usually think about legitimacy—but also through display in his royal court where he lived, where he held his entertainments and his meetings. Burke Professor of American History and Associate Professor Dr. Holly Brewer of UMD will discuss how art in this reading becomes not just a measure of culture, but a weapon for propaganda and a tool to debate legitimacy. A light lunch will be served at 11:30.

Time:

Location: 
David C. Driskell Center

From arrow-punctured flesh to star-sewn skin, Havana-born, Brooklyn-based artist Carlos Martiel presents a visceral, thought-provoking canon in order to address the current sociopolitical landscape affecting minorities. Through his compelling performance pieces, Martiel embodies the unjustly afflicted and challenges the experience of looking as a passive act, asserting instead that it participates in and perpetuates discriminatory and exclusionary forms of oppression.
