Lewis Center for the Arts' Program in Visual Arts

In the arts and humanities, composition is frequently seen to be a solitary act. And while collaboration is lauded in many contexts, the real work of intellectual and creative collaboration is rarely discussed or modeled. Artist Cameron Rowland and scholar Saidiya Hartman will share some of the insights they have gleaned from their collaborative efforts thinking and working together about slavery and its afterlife. Please join us for a conversation on the joys and challenges of collaboration and composition, and cross-pollination between the arts and humanities, moderated by Visiting Professor in Visual Arts and Art & Archaeology Tina Campt. Co-sponsored by Princeton’s Department of Art & Archaeology.
