Event description

Description

Artist and scholar Teju Cole’s art practice includes photography, novels, art installations, essays and Spotify playlists. Cole will speak about the possibilities of art and activism at a time of wrenching political division. How can art enter—and transform—national conversations? What can activists teach artists about meaningful creative expression in the 21st century?

This is a first come, first seated event. On-site wait-list will be available and wait-listed guests will be seated in order of request ten minutes prior to the event.

Teju Cole's visit to AU has been made possible by the collaborative efforts of the following partners: College of Arts & Sciences, Humanities Lab, MFA Creative Writing Visiting Writers Series, Bishop McCabe Lecture Series, School of Communication, Studio Art Program, Department of Literature. Generous support was also provided by Interim Provost Mary Clark, Dean Peter Starr, Dean Jessica Waters, and University Librarian Nancy Davenport.
