Talk | Artist Talk


A talk by Jean Shin, who is recognized for her monumental installations that transform everyday objects into elegant expressions of identity and community. For each project, she amasses vast collections of a particular object—prescription pill bottles, sports trophies, sweaters—which are often sourced through donations from individuals in a participating community. These objects then become the materials for her sculptures, videos and site-specific installations. Distinguished by her meticulous, labor-intensive process, Shin's arresting installations reflect individuals' personal lives as well as collective issues that we face as a society.

Screening | Ingmar Bergman at 100


In 2018, we celebrate the 100th birthday of Ingmar Bergman, the great Swedish filmmaker who was, for many of us, the definitive purveyor of the art cinema. In addition to watching scenes from his greatest films, including Persona, The Seventh Seal, and Smiles of a Summer Night, you’ll see a few of the more brilliant parodies of Bergman’s work. As much as we love Bergman’s movies, their earnestness made them especially vulnerable to highbrow mockery.

Lecture | On the Imaginary Domain, Or Who Gets to Be a Person?


Professor Drucilla Cornell looks at our current society in which people seem to live in different universes. In “On the Imaginary Domain, Or Who Gets to Be a Person?” she suggests that is the case because of the increasingly divided way in which we imagine our world and ourselves. For her, imagination is not individual but instead thrives on the social symbols and allegories that give meaning to what it means to be a citizen of the United States—the “National Imaginary.” Cornell’s lecture focuses on what she calls the “Imaginary Domain,” which gives all human beings the moral, legal, and ethical right to determine their primary identifications, such as sexuality and ethnic belonging. Currently in the United States, the right of some people to claim that they are persons and have equal dignity is under attack.
