LISTENING CRITIQUES 2009 with David Gersten
A space for individuals and their works to engage in a collective dialogue.
Graduates students from six departments bring their studio works together into a space of reciprocity that will expose what their disciplines share, and their differences, while amplifying their individual pursuits and questions.
Amartya Sen has said that the aspiration of collective judgments should be individual agency.
Each discipline of art and design affords us unique means of comprehending the world and acting in it. They offer distict modes of navigating; of articulating light, substance, space and thought; they provide structures of perception, representation, and comprehension. All of the disciplines are implicated in each other’s hopes; they have a shared capacity to ask questions and mediate an exchange between our lives and our works. These exchanges may speak loud or in whispers…heard in their own beat and measure, the works themselves, empathetically call us close offering a deeply human sonnet.
