Participatory action research and the language curriculum: Practical and ethical considerations for the world languages educator

Art is a Black Hole: Talking about Dada, Duchamp, and Beyond @ Eli and Edythe Broad Art Museum at MSU | East Lansing | Michigan | United States

Join MSU Assistant Professor of Art History, Tessa Paneth-Pollak (art.msu.edu/profile/paneth-pollak), to explore the ways artists rely on viewers to “fill in the blanks”. This talk will look at the cardboard reliefs of Dada artist Hans Arp in connection with works by Duchamp, Manzoni, Gober, and others from our current exhibition, The Transported Man. This event is part three of Seeing What Isn’t There, a three-part series running throughout September that investigates the many ways artists invoke the invisible, the unseen, and the hidden.
