2019 Speaker Series
Rocking the Boat: Innovation as Tradition
This year’s Speaker Series focuses on the ways that artists create new traditions and ways of thinking vis-à-vis their roles as creatives. Through a series of intimate conversations, this series takes a look at the inseparable relationship between tradition and innovation.
We dedicate this series to all the visionaries and creative thinkers out there who have pushed and continue to push the boundaries and limits of visual culture in the name of maintaining and creating tradition. Thank you.
All discussions will be held at the School for Advanced Research, 660 Garcia Street, Santa Fe, NM 87505 from 6:00-7:30pm. These events are FREE and open to the public. Click on individual events for more information.
