The University of Washington School of Art, in conjunction with the Nebula Project, is pleased to announce its Winter Quarter 2014 lecture series. This annual series is organized to accompany the course Art 361/595 Critical Issues in Contemporary Art Practice, taught by guest lecturer Eric Fredericksen.

“the whole world + the work = the whole world.” This text, from Martin Creed’s Work No. 232 (2000), provides the conceptual framework for this year’s class. The equation can be read, pessimistically, to suggest that artworks make no impact on the world. It can also be read as a claim that works of art are not autonomous objects, but are completely immersed in the world around them. Through open conversations, this series encourages local engagement with global issues.

All lectures are free and open to the public and will be held at the Henry Art Gallery auditorium, 7pm.
