In this new speaker series presented by Newcomb Art Museum in partnership with A Studio in the Woods, The ByWater Institute at Tulane University, and Nola Gulf South, unlikely pairings of Tulane and Gulf South experts use an aspect of Newcomb’s latest exhibition as the catalyst for interdisciplinary dialogue. In this edition, artist Tia-Simon Gardner and English Chair Mike Kuczynski will use clay as the launching point for a deeper look into their own research and how they may, no matter how unlikely, overlap.
The discussion will be moderated by a representative from the hosting organizations and be held in the museum. The discussion will last around 45 minutes with 15 minutes of Q&A time at the end for audience engagement.
Both New Orleans and Tulane communities are encouraged to attend and take advantage of this opportunity to engage with academics, artists, and activists in a variety of fields.
