  • The American philosopher George Santayana once noted that beauty is far more central to our everyday lives than it is in philosophy. And true enough, aesthetics has always been a sort of fringe discipline within philosophy, lower in status than such fields as metaphysics, ethics, and theory of knowledge. In this lecture, Contemporary American philosopher Graham Harman will explain why this usual picture is mistaken, and show why aesthetics deserves to stand at the very center of philosophy.

  • For decades, the Los Angeles–based artist Lita Albuquerque has blurred distinctions between Land art and Light and Space on increasingly grander scales, whether it be building installations surrounding the pyramids in Egypt or placing sculptures across Antarctica to mirror the formation of the stars. Her cosmic explorations continue with two new bodies of work that are currently being shown at Kohn Gallery in Hollywood, from January 9 through February 27, 2016, and at USC’s Fisher Museum of Art, from January 26 through April 10, 2016.
