Over the past year, ArtCenter/South Florida has convened a series of meetings with curators, artists, gallerists, educators, and cultural leaders from within and outside of Miami to think together about the role of education in forming and reshaping the institutions that we occupy.
The questions asked and the lessons learned are the basis for RECESS: Art, Pedagogy, and the Social Sphere. This two-day forum relies on the idea of recess – a break from official proceedings – to assess institutional intentions and share strategies for creating horizons of possibility with art and education.
DAY 2: Research Vectored into Action
Building upon the questions and strategies addressed in day one, Research Vectored into Action presents a variety of programmatic outputs that have resulted from rethinking what can be done with institutional forms. The conversation specifically addresses the way in which education (in particular in the arts) responds to and attempts to act upon the social and political configurations organizing our present day both within and outside of culture.
