Sunday, December 8, 2pm
$5 Dollar Suggested Donation
How do images become placeholders for historic moments? What happens in the brain when images are no longer pictures, but rather icons loaded with emotion or politics? How is meaning-making changing as our world is increasingly flooded with images? This multi-media discussion event features short presentations by a panel of artists, journalists, and visual critics followed by a lively conversation about the ways that images (or the lack thereof) shape perception. Panelists include Nina Elder, Claudia X. Valdes, Dr. Khristaan Villela and others.
