Join faculty, staff, students and members of Western Washington University as they explore the question, “How does the political context of art affect the way we consume it?” A panel presentation will be followed by small group conversation in the WWU Gallery.
This Teaching-Learning Academy (TLA) dialogue-based event complements the Western Gallery’s current exhibition, “Knowledge Bennett: Road to Damascus.”
Knowledge’s work appropriates pop culture imagery to address and critique American idealism, political corruption, and systematic racial stratification from past to the present. The TLA dialogue events offer students, faculty, staff, and community members a chance to come together and explore questions and issues that affect us all.
