Who Owns Culture?
9:00am - 4:00pm
Appropriation of culture and intellectual property has become a polarizing and much discussed topic in contemporary society; however, less is said about its related counterpart, “appreciation.”
This one-day symposium will bring together artists, curators, and scholars to explore the nuances of appropriation and appreciation in a series of four discussions led off by a keynote address.
Keynote speaker is Glenn Adamson. The symposium will also feature Ramona Beltran, Gregg Deal, Carla Fernandez, Jamie Okuma, Chen Shen, Clarissa Tossin, John Lukavic, Becky Hart, Tianlong Jiao, Jorge Rivas, and Florence Müller.
