Graduate Symposium 2023
November 10, 2023
The Rachofsky Collection announces an open call for submissions for its 2023 Graduate Symposium at The Warehouse Dallas on the theme of The Event with keynote speaker Dr. Jo Melvin, Professor of Fine Art & Feminisms, University of Arts London. Based on the ideas of British artist John Latham and the Least Event—the smallest moment or action after zero—this symposium will look at six different artists that resonate with Latham’s work through their ideas of time-space, the event, and the moment of creation in art and performance. Students are invited to submit their research on John Latham, Atsuko Tanaka, Giulio Paolini, Michelle Stuart, Shinro Ohtake, and Cheyney Thompson, with preferred focus on works within The Rachofsky Collection. Proposals are due by Wednesday, May 31, 2023.
