Location: 

Online—Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study at Harvard

The virtual exhibition Accompanied: The Artworks of Marilyn Pappas and Jill Slosburg-Ackerman presents a pair of artists whose work was transformed by an abiding friendship.

Understanding the Role of Race in Health

Kiley Fellow Lecture: Seth Denizen, "Thinking Through Soil: Case Study from the Mezquital Valley"

12:00pm to 1:30pm

Location: 

Online—Harvard Graduate School of Design

Almost 200,000 acres of land in the fertile Mezquital Valley are irrigated with the untreated sewage of Mexico City. Every drop of rain, urban runoff, industrial effluent, and sewage in Mexico City is sent to the Mezquital Valley through a 60 kilometer pipe. Soils in this valley have been continuously irrigated with urban wastewater since 1901, longer than any other soil in the world. The capacity of these soils to produce conditions in which agriculture can be practiced safely and produce healthy crops depends on a complex negotiation between soil...

Expressive Sculpture

Repeats every week every Monday until Mon Oct 19 2020 .
2:00pm to 4:00pm

Location: 

Online Event

Clay’s responsiveness to touch makes it the ideal medium to sculpt both what we can see with our eyes and new forms that reveal what we can’t.  Through lectures and demonstrations, we will discuss a variety of techniques on developing individual creative approaches that students will then use to make a small body of work. Demonstrations will cover several technical considerations in making complex sculptural works with extra attention paid to making work in the home and transporting to the student’s own studio or to the Harvard studio for firing. If time allows, surface techniques...

Exhibition Opening and Artist Talk: Accompanied

4:00pm

Location: 

Online—Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study at Harvard

The artists Marilyn Pappas and Jill Slosburg-Ackerman met at Radcliffe’s Bunting Institute in the 1980s. Decades later, their sustained friendship has led them to work in adjoining studios and teach generations of artists.

In this exhibition-opening discussion, Pappas and Slosburg-Ackerman will reflect on how their artistic practices have been shaped by friendship and the ways in which women’s art is shaped by the conditions of its making. Pappas and Slosburg-Ackerman will be joined in conversation by author Maggie Doherty.
