Spring 2007 Visiting Artists and Scholars Lecture Series
7:30pm, free and open to the public

Centering on the question of how art can continually position itself within our geopolitical situation, the idea of public sphere becomes quintessential to creative activity. The spring program of public lectures by visiting artists and scholars at SFAI will investigate the key art world and societal debates of our current moment.
