Join us this semester for our Beyond the Page public programming series, as we continue to explore Seeing Stories: Visualizing Sustainable Citizenship. This series is co-curated by Temple Contemporary, Temple University’s Office of Sustainability, and Temple University Libraries, along with faculty and graduate students from the Tyler School of Art, the College of Liberal Arts, and the Center for the Cinematic and Performing Arts, and engages tangible, aesthetic, design, and activist practices that impact our environment.
Our first program in the series is a documentary screening of Weedeater, followed by a Q&A with director Eden Batki and the film’s subject, Nance Klehm. This program will take place Thursday, January 26 at 2:30 PM in the Paley Library Lecture Hall.
Other upcoming Seeing Stories programs include a discussion and workshop with the Land Art Generator Initiative (February 3-4); a panel discussion about sustaining creative energy with writer Hrag Vartanian, artist Sharon Louden, and curator Deana Haggag (March 3); and a conversation with landscape architect Kate Kennen (March 23). Visit our Beyond the Page website for the most up-to-date information.
We’re also continuing to collaborate with academic, community, and artistic partners to bring you a variety of other lectures, panels, exhibitions, concerts, and events to inspire and engage you. On Wednesday, February 1, we are partnering with the Department of Spanish and Portuguese and the Geography and Urban Studies Graduate Student Association to present Ixcanul, a Guatemalan film by Jayro Bustamante (2015). Please join us at 5:00 PM in the Paley Library Lecture Hall for this free screening.
All programs are free and open to all. Check out the program schedule as it becomes available and make sure to check back for updates and new programs as we move into spring.
