Students at the Hammer Museum

UCLA Art History Graduate Student Symposium: Alterations

In parks and other public areas, paths caused by erosion and foot traffic form alternate routes and shortcuts, defying preplanned routes such as sidewalks and roads. What are the consequences of such alterations? And how do these modifications function as objects or images? At this symposium, emerging scholars across disciplines address the history and aesthetics of public alterations of surfaces, structures, subjects, and systems as they relate to art and art history. Keynote at the Fowler Museum on Thursday, October 18 at 6 p.m.

Generously co-sponsored by the UCLA Department of Art History and UCLA Design Media Arts, with support from the UCLA GSA.
