Transart Advisor Jean Marie Casbarian will be moderating a panel at the After the Fact Symposium at the International Center of Photography
Featured participants include Jean Marie Casbarian, Nona Faustine, Alex Fialho, Gordon Hall, Katherine Hubbard, Steffani Jemison, Martha Joseph, T. Nikki Cesare Schotzko, Milagros de la Torre, and Martha Wilson.
The symposium will explore how we process personal and political information, how we view and contextualize art, and how the worlds of both fact and fiction inform our everyday realities and our senses of self. Natural disasters, encounters with works of art, acts of political resistance, the genesis of authentic love, all are points of no return. What happens when we feel, live, and experience the intensities that emerge, as if out of nowhere, as miraculous forces? How do we relate to contingencies, which change the way we perceive our selves and engage in our world?
Date & Time: Saturday, December 12, from 11 am–5 pm.
Location: Seminar B/Shooting Studio at the School at ICP,
1114 Avenue of the Americas at 43rd Street.
Registration: Free and open to the public.
