Critical Distance: Anna Craycroft in conversation with the exhibition participants of Tuning the Room from the Otis College community
Anna Craycroft will invite all exhibition participants, including teachers, students, and classes, to take part in a roundtable discussion reflecting on how Tuning the Room was engaged. Together we can explore questions raised by the exhibition. What is the role that art and art education play in how voices are heard? Can we tune our communities and institutions? How do specific characteristics of an environment shape our experience within it? What is the social power of sound and light? This discussion will consider what we learned from the diverse ways in which the exhibition was utilized and occupied. Snacks and beverages will be provided by Eden Batki that draw awareness to taste and digestion, mirroring the exhibition's attention to the sensory perception of acoustics and optics.
