The Critical Issues in Contemporary Art Practice lecture series brings together artists and thinkers on the forefront of contemporary art practice to share ideas, raise questions, and engage with curious thinkers in both the UW School of Art + Art History + Design and the community at large.

The series is made possible by the integral support of The New Foundation Seattle, a nonprofit organization devoted to encouraging the production of contemporary visual art through dynamic initiatives that stimulate artistic development, research, and presentation.

All lectures are free and open to the public; for more information, visit art.washington.edu.

Critical Issues in Contemporary Art Practice pairs public lectures by internationally renowned artists with a classroom experience for UW students. It consists of seven public artist lectures, activities at the Jacob Lawrence Gallery, and readings of essays and fiction by artists, theorists, novelists and curators. The theme of this year’s series “We don’t need other worlds. We need mirrors.”will use speculative forms of philosophy, science fiction, and feminism to situate art firmly within the common world we share, reflecting on current social, political, and philosophical conditions and possibilities rather than imaginative escapes.
