ARTLab launches "Thinking Globally"


ARTLab, an interdisciplinary project of the School of Art at NIU, is about to launch "Thinking Globally," a year of research, dialogue, programming, and pedagogy focusing on the impact of globalization on the production and perception of cultural meaning.

"Thinking Globally" will take place across several platforms this fall and spring, including our Salon Series, meeting alternate Fridays, 3:00-5:00pm beginning September 11th in the School of Art's Jack Olson Gallery and featuring screenings, topical readings, and discussion among NIU faculty, students, and guests, a symposium entitled "Thinking Globally," held in Barsema Alumni and Visitors Center, Friday, October 23rd, 9:30am-4:30pm featuring presentations by NIU faculty from multiple departments (Anthropology, Art Education, Art History, Geography, History, Marketing, Music, Sociology, Spanish Language and Literature, and Studio Art), a team-taught seminar class, ART 680, in Spring 2010, and HOME, an ARTLab/Guerra de la Paz exhibition, February 19-March 25 2010 in the School of Art's Jack Olson Gallery featuring the artist-team, Alain Guerra and NIU alumnus Neraldo de la Paz in residence to coordinate a collaborative, site-specific installation.
