Penn Lightbulb Café series lecture and discussion, ‘“What is American Art?’
Tuesday, Dec. 2, 6-7 p.m.
World Cafe Live Upstairs, 3025 Walnut St., Philadelphia
Professor DuBois Shaw's talk will examine contemporary art and the historical, curatorial and critical strategies and tactics for using such markers as race, gender, sexuality and regional identity to interpret art today.
The talk is part of the Penn Lightbulb Café, a free public-lecture series presented by the School of Arts & Sciences and the Office of University Communications that takes arts, humanities and social-sciences scholarship out of the classroom for a night on the town. Each hour-long talk begins at 6 p.m. and is followed by an audience Q&A. Café events are free and open to the public. Seating is limited. Menu items will be available for purchase.
