Aesthetics lecture:  John C. Welchman

There is an interesting exhibit now showing on campus at the Nora Eccles Harrison Museum of Art. The exhibit is “Your place in the Multiverse” by Jean Lowe. It doesn’t have to do with quantum mechanics, but instead playfully presents us with the ways we present our lives and selves to ourselves in a capitalist culture. Lowe’s work “carefully and humorously unpacks the ironies and challenges of our 21st-century culture.”

There will be a lecture by John C. Welchman about Lowe’s work. Welchman is a professor at the University of California San Diego who works in modern and contemporary art history and critical theory, and will be discussing the thought of Theodor Adorno in this lecture. The lecture will be on October 19th, 12:30 pm, and held over Zoom, but if you want to attend you will need to register. More information here about the exhibit (including a virtual tour): the exhibit

Curious about the ways humans use their minds and hearts to distract themselves from the meaninglessness of life.
