Fong Auditorium, Boylston Hall, Harvard University, Cambridge, MA

Free and open to the public

Presented by AIC, Alfredo Jaar will give a public lecture on interventionist art at Harvard.According to Jaar "this course considers visual practices as an integral part of a network of social and cultural relationships. It considers the city as laboratory: Cambridge/Boston will be analyzed and explored as a social landscape where participants will be invited to intervene in public space. We will consider context, site, audience and presentation (communication) as an essential, structural aspect of the artistic production process."

This lecture is co-sponsored by Cultural Agents Initiative, Harvard Humanitarian Initiative, and the David Rockefeller Center for Latin American Studies, and hosted by the Harvard Mahindra Humanities Center.

Alfredo Jaar is a contributing artist to the AIC Artists Prospectus for the Nation - a multimedia work through which artists and other creative thinkers will propose innovative ways they can become integral to major debates - on topics of Justice, Learning, and Nation.
