An Open Seminar with Writer and Curator
Shoghig Halajian
Wednesday, November 21, 2018

Yerba Buena Center for the Arts

10am

Curator and writer Shoghig Halajian will present on the work she has done to foster performative and underexposed modes of expression at the not-for-profit arts organization Human Resources in Los Angeles.

Open Seminar creates opportunities for the graduate academic seminar to step into the public realm, with faculty, students, and visiting practitioners deciding how to intersect the typically reserved seminar format with a broader selection of invited attendees from the arts and culture scenes in the Bay Area.
