Throughout the academic year, KCAI students have opportunities to meet, work with and hear lectures by a wide range of campus visitors, many of whom are celebrated artists and designers. Often, they conduct workshops during their stay. Some take time to talk with students one-on-one and critique their work.
We invite you to join us for Current Perspectives. Lectures are FREE and take place on Thursdays 11:45 a.m. to 12:45 p.m. in Vanderslice Hall at KCAI in the Epperson Auditorium.
Fall 2017 Current Perspective Guest Speakers
The film premiered earlier this year at the Museum of Modern Art’s Documentary Fortnight in New York and then played top tier film festivals such as South By Southwest and Full Frame Documentary Festival. We had a fantastic review in the Hollywood Reporter recently and great press in the New York Times’ Arts and Leisure section. The film chronicles the creation of Repellent Fence, a two-mile long art installation constructed by arts collective Postcommodity in 2015 that crossed the US/Mexico border going a mile in each direction. Native American art collective Postcommodity’s work was part of the 2017 Whitney Biennial and Documenta 14.
The film trailer can be found here.
