    "Across the Divide: Intermediality and American Art" Symposium

    September 30, 2016 | 8:45 AM
    Visual Arts Center, Beam Classroom

    How do artists exchange motifs and tropes from one kind of art to another? How do different media play against each other? Can the integration of aesthetic concepts from different media interfere with each other? How might experiences with different media spark new and surprising experiences for audiences and artists alike? The symposium 'Across the Divide: Intermediality and American Art' takes these questions as a point of departure for an investigation of this practice in American art.
