Please join us September 27–28 for an exploration of the birth, lives, and afterlives of objects. As we honor the sculpture and remark upon its layered history, the museum will host interdisciplinary conversations about how we interpret impermanence and what it means to our communities through works of art. Keynote address by the artist Jim Hodges will open the symposium on Thursday, September 27. Friday, September 28, will consist of three panels of scholars, artists, conservators, and curators, and a series of concurrent gallery workshops. Free.
The symposium is co-sponsored by the Case Western Reserve University Department of Art History and Art, the Baker-Nord Center for the Humanities, and the Cleveland Museum of Art.
