Study Day: “Teach-in: Artists & the Vietnam War”
Offered in conjunction with “Artists Respond: American Art and the Vietnam War, 1965–1975”, this study day “teach-in” will feature talks by prominent artists and leading scholars, small-group dialogues, and art activations. Featured speakers include curators Melissa Ho and Robert Cozzolino, scholars Karen Mary Davalos and Rujeko Hockley, and artists Peter Saul, Rupert Garcia, Jesse Trevino, Harry Gamboa, Jr., Kim Jones, Pao Her, Thi Bui, and Tiffany Chung. Conversations will explore experiences during 1965–75, pose critical questions about our current time, and reflect on the half-century that separates the two.
