Cranbrook Academy of Art Announces Its Spring 2017 Lecture Series

Visitors will consider the consequences of globalization on creative practice

Bloomfield Hills, Mich., Jan. 20, 2017 – Cranbrook Academy of Art announces its [SPRING] Lecture Series, bringing speakers from around the world to campus to share insights and engage in conversations with Academy students and the general public. As an institution, the Academy is committed to emphasizing current trends in the field of contemporary art, design, and architecture.

This year, the Academy has asked its visitors to consider the consequences of globalization on creative practice and social engagement – from issues of cultural homogenization to the politicized body to neo-liberalism – and question how pressure for global cultures and multiple identities fuels the communication of ideas.

The Academy welcomes visitors from across the country to explore and discuss contemporary creative practices while supporting innovative inquiry from the vantage point of artists, critics, and scholars.
