Next Date:

Learn something new while enjoying an after work drink. Every event offers a new topic on diverse aspects of art history, theory and contemporary art practice presented by artists, educators and researchers. A cash bar is available.

In April, join local philosopher and educator Bruce Baugh for a discussion about spaces. Gaston Bachelard’s "Poetics of Space" (1958) used poetry to explore the qualities of spaces: open, closed, intimate, vast, sheltered, exposed. In this talk, Baugh will use philosophy to explore different kinds of space: bodily, lived, public, private, interior, domestic, outdoor, wild, geometrical and pictorial.
